Columbia University Postdoctoral Research Opportunities in Poverty & Social Policy

Professor Irwin Garfinkel and Doctor Christopher Wimer announce that the Center on Poverty and Social Policy at the Columbia University School of Social Work and the Columbia Population Research Center are recruiting two postdoctoral research scholars.

One postdoc will work with faculty and staff to conduct new analyses of national, state, and city trends in poverty using an improved measure of poverty based on the supplemental poverty measure (SPM) recently developed by the United States Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The other will support a project on the costs, benefits and distributional consequences of alternative policy packages to halve U.S. child poverty.
