Position Description

PHI is a national nonprofit organization that works to transform eldercare and disability services by promoting quality direct care jobs as the foundation of quality care. Founded in 1991, PHI draws on over three decades of experience to drive the systemic changes needed to ensure that direct care work is quality work—defined in terms of family-sustaining wages and benefits, improved training and support, and meaningful career paths, among other job quality elements. As a key member of the PHI Research and Evaluation Department, the Research Associate will produce and disseminate original research materials on systemic inequities facing direct care workers and promising policy and practice models to address these inequities, with a focus on job quality and worker voice. This research will inform the development of equity-specific policy advocacy tools and workforce interventions that reduce disparities and promote equity within the direct care workforce.
