The Center for Education Policy Research (CEPR) at Harvard University seeks a Senior Research Manager to direct and develop the analytical work of the Strategic Data Project (SDP) and of CEPR more broadly.
Initially, the Senior Research Manager’s primary responsibility will be to oversee SDP’s diagnostic analyses, including leading teams of faculty, researchers, and policymakers to identify salient and actionable questions for system leaders, develop and execute a rigorous analysis plan, and present findings to key stakeholders in our partner agencies, as well as to researchers and policy makers more broadly. In addition, the Senior Research Manager will play a key role in developing proposals for new SDP and CEPR studies that contribute to the research base in teacher effectiveness and students’ postsecondary attainment. The Senior Research Manager will report to CEPR’s Executive Director and, in collaboration with CEPR’s current Senior Research Manager, will oversee a growing team of Research Managers and Research Analysts. Due to the breadth and number of our current and future partners, The Senior Research Manager should anticipate traveling 20%-25% (i.e., roughly one week/month).
