Research Associate

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 Research Associate performs data cleaning, merging and analysis; reviews relevant literature; develops project models and data visualizations; and drafts and/or revises team memos, policy reports, academic papers and conference presentations. Candidates must be experienced with Stata programming and Microsoft Excel, possess strong oral and written communication skills, and demonstrate the ability to work both independently and as part of a dynamic team. Our team is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive environment, and we encourage people from historically underrepresented communities to apply.

Interested applicants should submit a cover letter and resume here.
