Susan Lambert, associate professor at the School of Social Service Administration at the University of Chicago, is one of the few researchers focusing on the "work" side of work-life issues, primarily studying low-skilled, hourly jobs. She is also an Employment Policy Research Network researcher.
Central to her research ─ which has received funding from the Ford, Annie E. Casey and Russell Sage foundations ─ is examining whether it is possible to create a better model of work for both hourly low-wage employees and employers.
Her fields of special interest include lower-skilled jobs and low-wage workers, work-life issues, and organizational theory and management.
Lambert received a B.A. summa cum laude in psychology from Eastern Michigan University, a M.S.W. (social program evaluation) and a Ph.D. in social work and social science (organizational psychology) from the University of Michigan.
