We are committed to
the public good
At the Public Policy Lab, we think that all Americans should have the opportunity to pursue a healthy life, a good education, rewarding work, and a secure retirement — and we believe that, at its best, government offers public services that are powerful tools to help people improve their own individual well-being and prosperity.
Since our founding in 2011 by David Gibson, the late Sylvia Harris, and Chelsea Mauldin, PPL’s community of staff, fellows, and board has grown to include more than two dozen multi-disciplinary researchers, strategists, and designers — all committed to creating public programs and policies that better serve the people.
Thanks for your interest! We are accepting applications for a staff Design Director position. See the link below or this PDF for more details about the role. We expect to close the application period in mid summer and have the new person join our team in fall 2017.
We’re not currently looking for new fellows, but we’re always glad to get connected to qualified individuals for future opportunities. Generally, qualified fellow candidates have a graduate degree in design or social science and at least three to five years of professional work experience.
