Asst Director, Research Practice Partnership Initiatives

The Office of Community Education Partnerships (OCEP) needs a Senior Research Data Analyst (Assistant Director of Research Practice Partnership (RPP)) Initiatives to help manage its RPP collaborations with Chicago Public Schools and both Evanston School Districts. SESP’s RPP work is supported by OCEP and dedicated to bringing research, practice, and policy together for mutual learning in education. This work is growing through numerous grants from federal and private foundations and gifts and its expansion to include out-of-school time and youth development organizations. Our RPP work engages and supports many SESP faculty as well as faculty from across Northwestern.

The Assistant Director of RPP Initiatives will be responsible for bridging organizations, providing and developing analytic capacity, and maintaining technical infrastructure for partnered research. They must have a strong base of project management, coordination, research design, and qualitative and quantitative data analysis and technical skills that can be flexibly adapted to meet the many needs of university researchers and our external school and community partners. The Director must understand the unique responsibilities and accountabilities of a multi-stakeholder collaborative and provide outstanding leadership; communicate professionally; and work with flexibility, efficiency, and diplomacy both individually and as part of a team and community effort.
