The Research Alliance for New York City Schools (www.ranycs.org), an independent research center housed in the NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, invites applications for a Research Analyst. The Research Analyst will be responsible for processing and analyzing data from school administrative records, surveys, and assessments, and will contribute to projects on a range of topics, such as computer science education, social-emotional learning, and post-secondary access and success. In particular, the Research Analyst will be part of a team working on our study of New York City’s Computer Science for All (CS4All) initiative. CS4All aims to ensure that all students in NYC have access to high-quality opportunities to learn computational thinking, problem solving, and critical and creative thinking. The Research Analyst will also contribute to other projects at the Research Alliance as needed.
About the Research Alliance for New York City Schools
The Research Alliance was formed in 2008 to conduct rigorous studies on topics that matter to NYC’s public schools. We strive to advance equity and excellence in education by providing evidence about policies and practices that promote students’ development and academic success. Our access to longitudinal data from both the NYC Department of Education (DOE) and the City University of New York, coupled with our strong relationships with educators and policymakers, allows Research Alliance staff to undertake work that makes a meaningful difference for NYC students and communities. We are seeking candidates from diverse backgrounds, particularly from groups that are underrepresented in applied research.
