This job announcement posted on the Land Use Prof Blog looks like a wonderful opportunity for a mid-level or recent grad (JD or masters) to work on housing policy:
For the first time in 12 years, [Center on Budget and Policy Priorities] CBPP has an opening for a new Housing Policy Analyst to join our team in the DC office. I think you all know our work well enough to appreciate what a good career opportunity this could be for someone with a masters’ (or J.D.) who is interested in making an impact on housing policy. The person in this position will focus (at least initially) on funding and policy reforms for federal rental assistance, particularly the Housing Choice Voucher program, but the scope of work may expand as opportunities arise. We’re looking for a really smart, insightful analyst with excellent communications skills and a deep commitment to making poor people’s lives better. Please share this announcement with people you think would be interested and qualified (check out the job posting at http://www.cbpp.org/careers/policy-analyst-housing). Salary really is commensurate with experience – we’re open to mid-level people as well as those recently out of grad school. We hope to have the new analyst begin work in January.
