Project Manager for College Access Program and Evaluation

Seeking a project manager for a one-year project to help design, implement, and plan an evaluation of a statewide college access program. The person will work with Drs. Sara Goldrick-Rab and Douglas N. Harris to craft a unique partnership between state and local governments, business leaders, non-profits, and researchers. The work will offer many opportunities to interact with key state leaders. It is also for an important cause—searching for ways to improve college access for low-income students.

Duties will include: managing daily project activities and deadlines, facilitating the collection of student academic data from state and local government sources, attending meetings with project directors and key partners, and crafting and authoring reports and grant proposals.

The position reports to Drs. Goldrick-Rab and Harris. It begins immediately and ends May 31, 2010 (with possible continuation, contingent on funding). The position is full-time but hours are flexible (some business hours are required). Bachelor’s degree required, MA preferred. Demonstrated interest in education issues and experience with program evaluation and basic statistics also preferred.

The salary associated with the position is $40,000, non-negotiable. The position is that of a consultant, and does not include benefits (benefits could be negotiated, but a lower salary would be required) or office space.

The ideal candidate is reliable, articulate, punctual, energetic, and able to work independently. Must reside in or near Madison, Wisconsin. Must have reliable access to internet, cell phone, and car.

We seek to fill the position immediately. Applications will be considered until the position is filled. To apply, send resume/CV and names and contact information for three references to: and with subject line “Project Manager.”
