The Resolution Foundation is looking for a thoughtful and committed individual to join our research team, in order to help drive the Resolution Foundation’s production of high quality, innovative economic analysis and support our development of associated policy recommendations.

The role will add to our capacity across a range of areas associated with the living standards of households on low-to-middle incomes and the post-holder will be given the opportunity to develop expertise in a specific subject area.

We are a fast-paced organisation, focused on responding to the current economic crisis as well as contributing to crucial longer-term public policy debates. The capability to work at pace on several different projects concurrently and a strong desire to progress within an academically-rigorous and policy engaged research team are essential.
