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 health care 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.
The senior associate, based in Pew’s Washington, DC, office, will inform and influence public policy by using research tools to further project goals. The senior associate will provide factual support to develop and further the project team’s advocacy positions and will work with the project team to design and implement a research agenda on emerging areas in healthcare products. The position will require developing subject matter expertise related to healthcare products; executing a research agenda; developing detailed policy recommendations; and contributing to a legislative campaign.
Reporting to the project director, the senior associate will work closely with Pew colleagues in communications, research, government relations, and other areas. This 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.
This position is expected to include occasional overnight travel for meetings and conferences.
