Harvard Jobs – Research Manager

Website Harvard

Job Description:

The Center for Education Policy Research (CEPR) at Harvard University seeks a Senior Research Manager to oversee and further develop the analytical work of Proving Ground and the Strategic Data Project (SDP). CEPR partners with school districts, charter school networks, and state education agencies to bring high quality research methods and data analysis to bear on strategic management and policy decisions. We believe that (1) policy and management decisions directly influence the ability of schools and teachers to improve student achievement; and (2) valid and reliable data analysis significantly improves the quality of decision-making. We design our work around the theory of action that if we are able to bring together the right people, the right data, and the right analysis, then significantly better decision-making – as measured by student results – will occur.


Job Responsibilities:

  • Lead a team of faculty and researchers in developing postsecondary diagnostic analyses and tools. These analyses will support districts in piloting and testing interventions and support SDP fellows in conducting key student success analyses. Analyses will target salient and actionable questions.
  • Manage research analysts, coach SDP fellows, and lead workshops. This includes training and mentoring research analysts to develop their research and professional skills, as well as leading group learning experiences for fellows.
  • Provide technical training to analysts and fellows on research methods and selection of an appropriate statistical method.
