Harvard College: Assistant Director of Research

The Office of Undergraduate Research and Fellowships (URAF) at Harvard College is seeking outstanding applicants for the position of Assistant Director of Research.  As the "official" job announcement states, not only is URAF the hub of policy and process for undergraduate research and fellowships across the Harvard universe, we also are responsible for over fifty internal and external competitions for research programs, independent research and postgraduate fellowship funding, and the endorsement processes for the national and international fellowships with which you undoubtedly are familiar.  As the institutional home of the residential Harvard College Summer Undergraduate Research Village, which supports approximately 400 Harvard and non-Harvard undergraduates conducting research with our faculty during the summer, our office indeed is an enterprise that is actively engaged with a broad array and high volume of constituents all year long.

We are seeking a diverse pool of candidates with an emphasis on evidence of strong program development and management skills;  knowledge of existing institutional and extramural undergraduate research programs; deep understanding of pedagogical practices related to research experiences and how they meaningfully enhance the wide-ranging curricular and intellectual goals of our students; along with stamina, fortitude, the ability to work across demanding multiple priorities with confidence and good-natured enthusiasm, and the desire and ability to succeed both independently and in a profoundly collaborative setting.  More specifically, we are looking for individuals who have had strongly positive experiences working with life, physical, and applied scientists as well as underrepresented minorities and underserved undergraduates.
