We’re looking for a Ph.D. to fill this job. It’s on a one-year contract basis, but we expect the job will be continuing. We’re trying to hire this summer.
The UCLA Institute for Research on Labor and Employment (IRLE) is seeking to hire a Program and Development Director. The role is to help shape and define the IRLE research agenda, identify funding sources, help mobilize relevant faculty and grad students, lead a process of grant and contract writing, and participate in research and dissemination of that research. Although there is a research component which can and should include pursuing the Program and Development Director’s own research interests, the bulk of the job consists of a more institution-building role, helping to draw in and organize others around externally funded research. One goal within this is to develop projects that bridge between more academic research based in IRLE’s Academic Unit, and more applied research and programs, especially those based in the Labor Center. This institution-building role is potentially quite exciting, in that it involves helping to lead the development of an expanded research agenda. The position would report directly to the IRLE Director, Chris Tilly. A copy of the job description is attached. IRLE’s goal is to fill this job over the summer.
