The Hope Center
Senior Research Associate (Full-time)
The Hope Center for College, Community and Justice, at Temple University is seeking a Senior Research Associate (Sr. RA) to join our growing team. As a mission-driven organization we take seriously the importance of rigorous research, engagement and communication activities, and advocacy. Our diverse team is committed to communities that demand affordable, accessible, high-quality education from high school through higher education and beyond. Our teammates demonstrate why #RealCollege matters: we have collectively lived the challenges of navigating government bureaucracy and cash-strapped colleges, experienced the trauma and perils of living without financial stability, and experienced marginalization along nearly every possible line.
Reporting to the Senior Associate Director of Research, the Sr. RA is responsible for conducting research studies within the Center. S/he will provide comprehensive senior level coordination and management of the day-to-day research activities, such as: designing and planning research studies, overseeing general data collection and serving as an authoritative source on research practices, precedents, theory, and principles. Most of these studies will be multi-sited, longitudinal studies utilizing multiple data sources and collaboration with both colleges and external agencies. All will be high-profile externally funded activities.
The Sr. RA will be responsible navigating human subjects and legal approvals, as well as recruiting study participants. S/he will conduct data cleaning, coding, and statistical programming and/or qualitative data collection, coding, and analysis activities. The Sr RA will also work on translating research studies into policy and/or practice and will prepare both public-facing and academic reports on the studies. Delivering presentations and seminars at national meetings and conferences is also an essential function of the role. Performs other duties as assigned.
