Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Research Manager will be part of a growing team at the Center for Education Policy Research (CEPR) at Harvard University. CEPR seeks to transform education through the power of research and evidence. CEPR and its partners believe all students will learn and thrive when education leaders make decisions using evidence, rather than hunches and untested assumptions. The Research Manager’s primary responsibility is to lead analyses and be the hub for CEPR research projects – working with PIs, a team of research analysts, and external research partners to assure the timely execution of CEPR’s research projects. Specific responsibilities include:

• Designing and conducting new analyses;
• Performing complex programming tasks;
• Guiding and teaching others in appropriate use of statistical methods;
• Participating in drafting and presenting key findings;
• Creating and managing project timelines;
• Supervising and developing junior staff; and
• Collaborating with faculty to continually refine analytic work products.

Basic qualifications include BA in economics, statistics, or related field; 5+ years of professional work experience (relevant coursework may count towards this experience); experience with staff management; and strong facility with STATA or R. Masters or doctorate degree strongly preferred.
