Position Description: The World Policy Analysis Center (WORLD) at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health (FSPH) has built the first ever global population data center of comparative global data on public policies, equity, poverty, labor conditions, and health and well-being outcomes. This data center makes it possible to undertake rigorous, cross-country global comparative research on how public and social policies are affecting health, well-being, and life outcomes across the world.
The Policy Analyst will join this team and contribute to an exciting and unique effort to build and maintain the first global resource to understand what countries are doing to promote human rights and human development. The Policy Analyst will play a vital role within WORLD by enhancing global health and social policy research and policy capacity at UCLA's FSPH, as well as in translating our research findings into action at the global, national and local levels. The incumbent will also be responsible for (but not limited to) the following: contributing to project-related materials on a range of national and global social policy issues, managing progress of publications and grant deliverables across a large team, and updating reports and bibliographies.
WORLD contains data from 193 United Nations member countries on public policies that have the potential to influence the health and well-being of populations. To date, the research team has gathered detailed information on labor conditions, poverty reduction policies, gender, disability, education, family, and constitutional rights globally. Currently, WORLD is focused on preparing this data for dissemination and use by a wide range of audiences, including, but not limited to, researchers/academics, policy advocates, civil society, the media, students and the public. The policy analyst will work in collaboration with WORLD team members primarily to further develop their databases to ensure they remain current with the latest available data, as well as participate in the dissemination of data, and contribute to WORLD priority research projects.
