*Research Analyst Position Available *

Utah Foundation is seeking a Research Analyst to perform public policy 
analysis and research. This is a full-time, salaried position but it may 
also be filled by experienced, exceptional part-time employees.

Candidates should have at least two years' experience in analysis or 
research on public-sector issues in a professional setting. The position 
requires strong quantitative skills, including proficiency working with 
financial and demographic data. Applicants must demonstrate an 
understanding of complicated policy topics such as education, 
healthcare, economics, or tax policy. Familiarity with data sources for 
research on policy issues will be valued. Candidates should hold a 
master's degree in public policy, public administration, political 
science, economics, or related subjects.

Proven, strong writing skills are required. Candidates must be able to 
analyze complicated subjects in an even-handed, nonpartisan manner. This 
position requires a high level of productivity and the ability to direct 
one's activities toward meeting regular deadlines for research 
publications. This analyst will sometimes work as a sole researcher on a 
topic and at other times will collaborate with other staff to jointly 
produce reports. Please see our website at _www.utahfoundation.org _for 
examples of our research and activities.

Although Utah Foundation is not an advocacy organization, this position 
offers an excellent opportunity to be involved in public policy making 
by attending hearings, testifying as a policy expert, participating in 
working groups and conferences, and interfacing with the news media, 
academia, and other interested parties.

The salary will depend on experience, in the range of $40,000+ per year. 
Benefits for full-time employees include health and dental insurance 
(90% paid by the Foundation), vacation and sick leave, opportunity to 
participate in a 403(b) tax-deferred retirement plan (similar to a 
401(k)), and a tax-exempt medical/dental/child care flexible spending 
account.

Please call Steve Kroes, President, at (801) 355-1400 (extension 5) to 
express interest in this position. Also submit a resume, writing sample 
(written with minimal or no editing by others), and references by email 
or fax to:

Email: _steve at utahfoundation.org _

Fax: (801) 355-1470

We're willing to consider filling this position with two part-time 
applicants if they have strong skills but are not available to work full 
time.//

/The mission of Utah Foundation is to promote a thriving economy, a 
well-prepared workforce, and a high quality of life for Utahns by 
performing thorough, well-supported research that helps policymakers, 
business and community leaders, and citizens better understand complex 
issues and providing practical, well-reasoned recommendations for policy 
change. /
