The Pew Charitable Trusts is driven by the power of knowledge to solve today’s most challenging problems. Pew applies a rigorous, analytical approach to improve public policy, inform the public, and invigorate civic life.
We are an independent nonprofit organization – the sole beneficiary of seven individual trusts established between 1948 and 1979 by two sons and two daughters of Sun Oil Company founder Joseph N. Pew and his wife, Mary Anderson Pew.
Our work lays the foundation for effective policy solutions by informing and engaging citizens, linking diverse interests to pursue common cause and insisting on tangible results. Our projects encourage efficient, responsive governments – at the local, state, national, and international levels – serving the public interests.
With offices in Philadelphia, Washington DC, Australia, Brussels and London, and with additional staff in other regions of the United States and around the globe, Pew provides an exciting learning environment and the opportunity to work with highly talented individuals. We are a dynamic, rapidly evolving organization that values creativity and innovative thinking and fosters strong teamwork with mutual respect.
Pew’s health programs utilize research and critical analysis to improve the public’s health and well-being. The healthcare products project works to enhance the safety and effectiveness of medical products routinely purchased by Americans, including compounded drugs, over-the-counter medications, dietary supplements, and other products regulated by the Food and Drug Administration.
This position, based in Pew’s Washington, D.C., office, will inform and influence public policy regarding medical products. The officer will take the lead on coordinating and managing policy analysis and research for the project, translate findings to support advocacy as appropriate, lead stakeholder meetings, and maintain internal and external communications. Reporting to the project director, the officer will work closely with communications, government relations, contracts and operations, and other projects at Pew. The position has a set time frame that could be extended based on the success of the program, funding sources, and board decisions on continued support.
Overnight travel as required for meetings and conferences.
