Chapel Hill, NC


ncIMPACT Initiative (ncIMPACT) was developed by the UNC School of Government (SOG) in 2017 to help public officials in North Carolina navigate critical policy challenges across a wide range of topics, including health, education, economic development, criminal justice, public finance, and the environment. This is achieved by providing civic leaders across the state with sound data, high-quality research, and rigorous analysis. ncIMPACT works closely with policymakers and other leaders to share evidence-based insights and creative policy options. ncIMPACT also enhances leaders’ understanding of innovative practices in North Carolina and across the United States and around the world.

The Lead Data and Policy Analyst of ncIMPACT reports to the ncIMPACT Community Engagement Director and is responsible for supporting ncIMPACT’s public policy research and programs through quantitative analysis, research dissemination and communication, and program development.

The Lead Data and Policy Analyst will contribute heavily to two major initiatives led by ncIMPACT and involving partners across the SOG and the larger UNC campus. The first, Carolina Across 100, is a five-year, pan-university effort to connect all 100 NC counties with university resources and supports to help them respond to issues exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The second, Solutions for North Carolina, is a new project of the SOG devoted to fostering a culture of innovation in North Carolina local governments and supporting their response to complex, disruptive issues.

The Lead Data and Policy Analyst will serve as the ncIMPACT team’s primary data analyst for research relevant to Carolina Across 100, Solutions for North Carolina, and other ncIMPACT programs. In collaboration with other members of the ncIMPACT team, the Lead Data and Policy Analyst will use data insights to inform the direction of ncIMPACT’s major programs and develop public-facing materials to support the work of NC civic leaders and policymakers. This position will be responsible for the following areas of responsibility: Research, Data Analysis, and Dissemination; Program Support and Engagement; and team support.
