The Pell Institute for the Study of Opportunity in Higher Education seeks a highly motivated and detail-oriented Research Associate to join our team. The successful candidate will work with a team of researchers supporting the Institute's mission to explore how higher education can be a more effective engine of opportunity and social mobility for first-generation and low-income students. In collaboration with the Director of the Pell Institute, the Research Associate will lead pre-college and college access research projects within the Pell Institute. The candidate should demonstrate strong project management and research skills and have extensive expertise on pre-college and college access topics and issues affecting historically marginalized students within U.S. education (e.g., first-generation college students and students from low-income backgrounds).
This position requires the ability to design and implement research projects from conceptualization to final deliverables. The candidate needs to have in-depth knowledge of education theory and research methodology, particularly as it pertains to pre-college/college access, strong communication skills, and a commitment to and affinity for delivering high-level research. The ideal candidate will have experience with federal TRIO programs as a researcher, a TRIO alum, or working with TRIO students.
