Subject: Seeking an Analyst in Natural Resources Policy

Good afternoon Dr. Hsu,

The Congressional Research Service (CRS) is recruiting for its 2018 Graduate Recruit Program.  The program is open to students currently enrolled in any year of an advanced degree program or graduating during the May 1, 2017 —August 31, 2018 academic year.  Initial appointments of up to 120 days will begin in the summer of 2018.  Selectees who perform successfully may be considered for permanent placement with CRS at the end of the summer or whenever they complete their graduate degree requirements.

The Analyst in Natural Resources Policy will provide objective public policy analysis and consultation on policies and issues related to natural resources policy for Members and committees of the U.S. Congress. The selectee will conduct research and analyses for Congress on the social, economic, and policy impacts of Department of the Interior-wide initiatives and efforts, as well as efforts specifically related to the federal management of lands, water resources, energy development, and related cultural resources issues.

The analyst will locate and interpret factual information; conduct research; prepare objective, non-partisan descriptive, background, and analytical reports and custom memoranda; and participate in team research projects and seminars.

This position requires the ability to utilize analytical methods and techniques to analyze policy issues for the U.S. Congress. Candidates should be comfortable with quantitative approaches in research and possess a diverse background of public policy issues related to natural resources policy.

The ideal candidate will have a solid educational and/or professional background in public policy, specifically in the history, trends, and status of natural resources policy, with an emphasis on federal lands, water, and energy issues. Coursework and fieldwork related to federal lands management, government finance, economics, water resources, and the intersection of federal, state, and tribal management of land, water, and energy would be helpful.

Strong presentation and writing skills, including the ability to synthesize complex analyses into easy-to-understand language for a non-technical audience, are required.

A complete listing of positions, eligibility requirements, and salary information is available on the CRS Careers website: http://www.loc.gov/crsinfo/opportunities/graduate-recruit.html<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.loc.gov_crsinfo_opportunities_graduate-2Drecruit.html&d=DwMGaQ&c=HPMtquzZjKY31rtkyGRFnQ&r=uGGGbmUSleSJUVhvzj7BDQ&m=szv4mhAv-1xHKS5qAyiDTHTuLGlJBl9p11tpiTNbU-U&s=Gmm6-qCw9judt7KENejTupXJmDnelDxdd5LwKSEsweQ&e=>.   Application instructions and selection and evaluation criteria can be found in each vacancy announcement.  Applications must be received by April 30, 2018.

The Graduate Recruit Program seeks to attract a diverse pool of highly qualified candidates.  Women, minorities and persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.  I hope you will alert your graduate students to this unique employment opportunity.

Thank you,
