Work With Us

Collaborations

The Center for Social Solutions, as part of its mission, seeks collaborative partners from a variety of backgrounds that share an interest in coming together to identify root causes and make substantive change in the issues identified in the center's initiatives. We invite both organizations and individuals with experience in pondering the value of diversity, the impact and continuation of slavery, the uneven distribution and threatened access to water, and the impacts of technology on the workforce across industries to reach out and signal their interest in working with us.

For those who would like to solicit our involvement in an existing project that is hosted outside of the center, please keep in mind that any efforts that we agree to partner with must align with our mission and one or more of our initiatives. We are best able to assist with creating the vision for collaborative endeavors to ensure that these social issues are approached through a holistic, knowledge-centered framework.

Employment

At CSS, you'll find a small but growing team with ample opportunity for those who are interested in promoting long-term solutions for tough problems. Our staff specialize in translating ideas into action plans and jumping in to do whatever is required to implement the center's vision. If you are passionate about the center's mission and thrive off of participating in new projects both independently and collaboratively, you'll find a welcoming work environment here. 

We are not actively hiring at the moment, but we invite anyone with an interest in employment to submit their resume and a general description of their interest in the center to socialsolutions@umich.edu. Opportunities that could become available in the near future include positions on our research, projects, or communications teams. Our research associates are mostly graduate students or post-doc fellows, but we are piloting an undergraduate research program for 2020.
