University of Michigan - Ann Arbor

We are committed to developing the next generation of education policy research scholars, and regularly train postdoctoral fellows to deepen their skills and knowledge of rigorous, applied quantitative education policy research. Our fellows become experts in estimating the causal effects of education policies and practices on student outcomes and learn to work closely with practitioners and agencies. Our collaborative and highly successful program positions fellows to secure tenure-track faculty and research positions at prestigious institutions.  A goal of this training program is to expand the diversity of researchers trained in rigorous, applied quantitative approaches to studying education policy. We especially encourage applications from scholars of color, scholars who have been the first in their family to pursue postsecondary or postgraduate education, and scholars whose doctoral programs may have provided fewer opportunities to apply their training in quantitative methods to real-world education policy issues. The postdoctoral training program is supported financially by a $700 thousand grant from the Institute of Education Sciences.
