Evaluation Coordinator (Research Associate)
The Center for Evaluation & Education Policy (CEEP) at Indiana University seeks one or more Evaluation Coordinators/Research Associates to join its team of research and evaluation professionals. Appointment at the Assistant Research Scientist level will be considered if qualifications warrant. With more than 40 years of evaluation and education policy experience, CEEP is a nationally recognized evaluation research center with more than 50 full-time staff members (including full-time Ph.D.-level research scientists, faculty, graduate assistants and professional and support staff) conducting between 60-80 research and evaluation projects a year, with over $12 million in current research funding.
Job Duties: Evaluation Coordinators/Research Associates will work closely and collaboratively with a CEEP Senior Research Associate to coordinate and implement a portfolio of evaluation projects. Evaluation Coordinators/Research Associates may both directly oversee smaller evaluation projects, as well as assist a Senior Research Associate as part of a team on large-scale evaluations. Evaluation Coordinators/Research Associates will implement all phases of the evaluation process from project design and proposal preparation through execution of the planned project activities. Typical activities will include instrument/survey development, data collection, data analysis, interpretation and application, and dissemination of findings in oral and written forms.
Qualifications: A master’s degree is required, with preference given to education and social science backgrounds. Candidates for the positions are expected to have a basic knowledge of research and evaluation methods, including previous experience with data collection and analysis. However, the position also will provide relatively new persons in the field of evaluation with opportunities to develop stronger skills and abilities during their tenure at CEEP. Candidates need to be detail oriented, with strong written and oral communication skills; and need to have the ability to work collaboratively and productively with others in a team environment.
Salary/Benefits: Salary and benefits are competitive. To apply for the position, please upload a letter of application, resume, and contact information for at least 3 references to https://indiana.peopleadmin.com.
For questions about the position contact Dr. Patricia Muller (email@example.com), Director of Research & Evaluation and CEEP Executive Associate Director, 1900 East Tenth Street, Bloomington, IN 47406.
