Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Senior Research Analyst (SRA) 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 primary responsibility of SRAs will be to lead the technical and analytic development of multiple projects across CEPR in discussion with faculty and CEPR leadership. Specific responsibilities include:

• independently analyzing data, designing new analyses, performing complex programming tasks,
• contributing to reports and presentations for partners,
• presenting key research findings,
• developing new research proposals, and
• creating work plans and managing timelines.

SRAs will also collaborate closely with CEPR leadership, Harvard faculty, and partner agency staff to continually refine analytic work products and to identify opportunities to leverage cutting-edge methods and technology in generating research evidence

Basic qualifications include MA in statistics, data science, economics, or related field; 5+ years of professional work experience (relevant coursework may count towards this experience); and strong facility with STATA or R.
