    Project # 1: CHILDREN’S PUBLIC HEALTH INSURANCE PROGRAMS AND THE DYNAMICS OF DISENROLLMENT

    RESPONSIBILITIES
    The summer intern will be involved in an on-going, mixed methods project on retention dynamics and the consequences of
    unstable coverage for low-income children enrolled in public health insurance programs (including Medi-Cal and Healthy
    Families). The intern will primarily be assisting with the qualitative portion of the study, which uses focus groups to understand
    low-income parents’ perceived barriers to staying continuously insured in public programs, and how parents navigate the
    health care system for their children more generally. In addition, the intern will work with the principal investigators to update
    information on state public insurance program policies and proposed impacts of national health care reform for children in
    these programs.

    Specifically, the intern will work with the project leaders in (1) restructuring, organizing, and coding focus group responses, (2)
    summarizing primary themes that emerge from the focus groups and (3) compiling information on state public health
    insurance program policies. The intern will prepare summaries of this information for incorporation in a PPIC publication and
    related work and will prepare a presentation summarizing this work for presentation to PPIC staff at the end of the summer.

    QUALIFICATIONS
    The intern for this project should have:
·    Expertise or strong interest in health policy. Familiarity with public health insurance programs preferred, but not required.
·    Experience or strong working knowledge of focus group and/or qualitative data coding and analyses.
·    Proven ability to analytically compile, critique, and synthesize information.
·    Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
·    Graduate training in public policy, health services research, or a related social science field.

    Project # 2: DO PENSION LAWS IMPEDE TEACHER MERIT PAY, ACCOUNTABILITY, AND ALTERNATIVE CERTIFICATIN
    POLICIES?

    RESPONSIBILITIES
    The rules of Social Security and the California State Teacher Retirement System (CalSTRS) may create strong disincentives for
    individuals to transition into or out of teaching, a fact that is often overlooked during discussions of teacher merit pay policies
    and policies designed to encourage experienced workers to become teachers. Some experienced teachers who would
    otherwise prefer to change careers may remain teachers rather than receive smaller pension benefits upon retirement.
    Disincentives created by Social Security and CalSTRS may make it particularly difficult to convince less-effective teachers to
    leave the profession and may contribute to union objections to teacher merit pay programs and other accountability
    programs. Pension rules may also decrease the effectiveness of alternative certification and other programs designed to
    encourage experienced professionals to become teachers.

    This study will estimate the magnitude of these disincentives for “typical” individuals who may wish†or be required†to
    transition into or out of teaching late in their careers. The study will also suggest policy changes to decrease experienced
    workers’ disincentives to transition into or out of teaching. The intern will research and summarize CalSTRS and Social Security
    rules; research, download, prepare, and analyze relevant data; and prepare a presentation summarizing this work for
    presentation to PPIC staff at the end of the summer.

    QUALIFICATIONS
    The intern for this project should have the following qualities:
·    Excellent written and verbal communication skills
·    The ability to synthesize and summarize a great deal of information
·    Proven analytical ability
·    Great facility with Microsoft Excel

        Project # 3: STATE AND FEDERAL HOUSING POLICY AFFECTING CALIFORNIANS

        RESPONSIBILITIES
        For a future project on housing in California, the summer intern would review (1) the main housing policies and programs at
        the state level in California and (2) federal housing programs and policies that are particularly important for California or that
        have different effects on California because of our higher prices, higher foreclosure rates, lower vacancy rates, or other
        features of the state’s housing market.

        The intern would produce a detailed outline describing policies at the state and federal level, brief histories, program details,
        and resources for further information. Time permitting, the outline would also include references to studies or evaluations of
        these policies.

        The intern will conduct online research as well as interviews with housing policy experts and real estate professionals as
        needed.

        QUALIFICATIONS
        The intern for this project should have:
·        Expertise or strong interest in housing policy or the California housing market.

        Project # 4: CALIFORNIA CLIMATE CHANGE POLICY – TRANSPORTATION AND LAND USE PLANNING

        INSTERNSHIP SUMMARY
        In 2008, California adopted legislation tying its regional transportation planning process to efforts to reduce greenhouse gas
        emissions (SB 375, Steinberg). Implementation of the law will require new thinking in the areas of transportation and land use
        planning ‟ both in terms of the integration of land use and transportation policy and how resources are allocated to
        implement these policies. This project involves a survey of planning departments in California cities and counties to understand
        what actions they are taking to address climate change, specifically through transportation and land use planning. The survey
        questions are designed to elicit information on current and planned local actions and constraints, what potential exists to
        reduce passenger vehicle travel through different types of measures, and what types of local and regional coordination are
        already taking place. To gather additional details of local and regional programs and financial constraints and opportunities,
        the survey will be coupled with structured interviews of regional and local officials, and analysis of transportation finance
        issues.

        RESPONSIBILITIES
        The summer intern will assist the principal investigators in conducting interviews, preparing case studies of local and regional
        actions, and examining transportation finance issues. The intern will prepare summaries of this information for incorporation
        into a PPIC publication and other related works, and will prepare a summary presentation to PPIC staff at the end of the
        summer.

        QUALIFICATIONS
        The intern for this project should have:
    ·    Familiarity with transportation and land use planning and California climate change policy
    ·    Excellent written and verbal communication skills
    ·    Strong computer and analytical skills
    ·    Interest in environmental science and policy
    ·    Graduate training in a field related to planning or law is a plus


        Project # 5: PPIC STATEWIDE SURVEY

        INTERNSHIP SUMMARY

    The PPIC Statewide Survey is an ongoing public opinion series documenting Californians’ attitudes toward political, social, and
    economic issues, their policy preferences, and their ballot choices. Survey topics include political and fiscal reform, the state’s
    budget conditions, 2010 elections, information technology and the digital divide, environmental issues, and health care policy.

    RESPONSIBILITIES
    The intern will conduct background research on health care topics, including the social determinants of health, and factors
    affecting healthy communities - such as air pollution, transportation, land use, immigration, education, governance, and jobs
    and the economy. The intern will provide support on a survey examining these questions.
    The intern will assist the survey team in all aspects of the survey series: validating survey databases; conducting data analysis;
    tracking and analyzing major federal, state, and local issues; preparing a series of PPIC Just the Facts publications; assisting
    with the creation of PowerPoint presentations for survey briefings; contributing to the preparation of the PPIC survey reports;
    and preparing and conducting a final presentation for PPIC staff.

    QUALIFICATIONS
    The intern for this project should have:
·    Excellent written and verbal communication skills
·    Proven analytical ability
·    Experience in quantitative analysis
·    Solid computer skills (Stata, SPSS, and Microsoft Access, Excel, PowerPoint, and Word desirable), including ability to prepare
    charts, graphs, and data summaries
·    Background in the social determinants of health and health care policy
·    Interest in public opinion research and California policy and politics

    In selecting interns, we look for a demonstrated interest in public policy research, with coursework or work experience
    relevant to the chosen project. Intellectual excellence, fit with our mission and goals, and diversity are essential elements in our
    consideration. Just as California’s rich diversity has made it the special place it is today, a diversity of talents, backgrounds, and
    viewpoints is critical to PPIC’s values and to our continued success.

    discussion of California state policy by PPIC’s government affairs staff.
