Call for Applications for Graduate Fellow position/Scholars Strategy Network

This is an opportunity to work on behalf of the Scholar’s Strategy Northwest. The Scholars Strategy Network (SSN) is a nationwide collection of university-based scholars – mostly social scientists – who want to reach out with their research and ideas to policymakers, citizens’ groups, and journalists at the national and state levels. Many of us already do this individually, but SSN has the resources and connections to develop and deepen these connections. You can find more information about the network here:
http://www.scholarsstrategynetwork.org/ and in the attached membership description and brochure.

With hundreds of scholars around the country already on board, SSN is rapidly expanding. Northwest SSN is a regional network node based in Seattle housed here at the University of Washington. Over the past, we’ve organized events that brought together scholars such as Theda Skocpol, Leslie McCall, Matt Desmond and Chris Uggen with local advocates, policymakers, and journalists. This year we plan to continue to disseminate research findings from local scholars to a wider audience and to facilitate chapter organizing on state budget and tax issues, including the possible production of a report that will document the adverse effects of Washington State’s regressive tax system and underfunding in key policy areas.

As a regional network node, we have the opportunity to name an SSN Graduate Fellow who will help coordinate this effort. The Fellow will receive a $2000 honorarium, in two installments (January and June). Fellows will turn over from one year to the next; they cannot be reappointed.

SSN is currently seeking applications for this position and is especially interested in candidates who have some familiarity with tax policy and the Washington State tax system specifically. If appointed SSN Graduate Fellow, you would become a member of SSN, participate in upcoming SSN events and projects, and assist us as we plan and publicize SSN events, organize chapter initiatives, and in the production of the report. To be eligible for the position, you must have presented your research at an academic conference, completed your Master’s thesis, or published a peer-reviewed article.

To complete an application, please fill out the attached member profile template and send it to us via email along with an idea for your first draft brief. (We will provide plenty of assistance in the drafting of the actual brief). These briefs constitute the core requirement to be an SSN member. We’ve attached an example; please notice the plain English writing style. Many more examples are available here: http://www.scholarsstrategynetwork.org/policy-briefs.

SSN is happy to answer any other questions you might have about becoming an SSN Graduate Fellow. Applications are needed back rather quickly – the deadline is August 31.

Please see attached documents for an SSN member profile template and some tips on how to write an SSN brief.
