Summary:

  • Support project investigators in translation of research findings into materials useful for academic and practitioner audiences (e.g., write and edit reports, briefs, research papers, workshop curricula, and other materials).
  • Represent the Equity in Graduate Education Resource Center in meetings with stakeholders, project partners, and other relevant groups; serve as a resource to the community.
  • Work as a team member to ensure efficient, effective, upbeat operations of the project.
  • Work cross-functionally with members of the IGEN management team to coordinate project activities, evaluations, reporting, and advisory board meetings.

Qualifications:

Education: Doctorate in education, science and technology studies, public policy, sociology, psychology, or a related field. A doctorate is required at the time of hire.
