Employment Opportunities

The Government Performance Lab is seeking to hire Fellows to serve as the primary advisors to state and local governments that receive our technical assistance for projects related to Pay for Success, Results-Driven Contracting, and Performance Improvement.

Fellows are typically placed on-site with the government office or agency that is spearheading a project.  These positions are expected to be located in a wide range of locations in the U.S., including California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York (including NYC), Rhode Island, Tennessee, and Washington State; other sites are possible as well. Fellows may also have opportunities to travel to provide technical assistance to additional jurisdictions.

Fellows function as day-to-day project managers, shepherding projects through conceptualization, design, and implementation. Fellows will develop substantial policy-area expertise; hands-on project management experience; technical skills related to benefit-cost analysis, financing, and evaluation; and a deep familiarity with government and NGO processes. Oversight and mentoring will be provided by the government policy lead, by a manager at the Government Performance Lab, and by Government Performance Lab Director Professor Jeffrey Liebman.See the postings below for more information:
