Opportunities at Annenberg

The Educational Opportunity in Massachusetts Project, housed within the Annenberg Institute at Brown University, is seeking a full-time Research Associate to join our team. We study the broad effects of educational reform in Massachusetts and the ways that the public K-12 and higher education systems promote and constrain opportunity for students from diverse backgrounds. Using integrated data from several state agencies, we follow students’ progress through the educational system and into the labor force.

The Project Manager works closely with Annenberg’s Local Impact Team helping to design partnership research projects’ overall direction and leading the projects execution. The project manager will work with Nate Schwartz, John Papay, and Kate Donohue to ensure the completion of short and long-term goals on time. This position may establish and/or maintain relationships with partners and other stakeholders. Responsibilities will include helping to design research plans, collecting data, coordinating the research team’s work, conducting quantitative analyses, and managing other research assistants as needed.

The Rhode Island Education Research Collaborative brings together local education leaders and researchers to solve pressing educational challenges, with a specific focus on student engagement and teacher learning. Drawing on the complementary expertise and earned trust of partners, the Collaborative seeks to improve Rhode Island student and school experiences through stronger use of data and evidence while producing research that has impact on a national scale.
