Associate Analyst, Embold Research

Change Research innovates to solve critically important problems at the intersection of data, social science, and politics.

In 2021, Change Research launched a new business unit, Embold Research, focused on nonpartisan public opinion research for public, private, and nonprofit entities working to improve the communities they serve—and we are growing our team and business. 

This is an opportunity to get in as an early employee of an impact-oriented company working on critical public policy issues of our time, including COVID-19, K-12 education, clean energy, and institutional trust, among others. We are helping public health organizations, state and local governments, clean energy companies, and other businesses lead with data and get things done.

We value a diverse and inclusive workplace where we learn from each other.  We invite people with different backgrounds, experiences, abilities, and perspectives to join our team. Black, Indigenous, and people of color, LGBTQ+ people, women, veterans, people living with disabilities, and members of historically disenfranchised populations are encouraged to apply. We are an equal opportunity employer, and we are currently accepting applications. Join us!
