The Georgia Public Policy Foundation, established in 1991, is a trusted, independent resource for voters and elected officials. We provide actionable solutions to real-life problems by bringing people together. We seek a new team member to help expand our capacity to gather and present the data needed to make compelling cases for meaningful policy reforms.
About the Role
If you’re passionate about liberty, our newly created Research Fellow position is intended to be an entryway into the free-enterprise movement. Georgia Policy works across the waterfront of economic-related policy issues: Our current strategic priorities are focused on education, healthcare, tax reform, and housing affordability.

You’ll feed that information into a variety of products, from white papers to infographics, blog posts to investigative journalism articles. We’ll encourage you to publish pieces of your own and build up your portfolio of work. While you’ll collaborate with a number of colleagues, you’ll report to our Policy and Research Director. This is a full-time position located in Atlanta, GA.
