Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Yale Research Initiative on Innovation and Scale seeks a dedicated and creative leader to serve as its first Director. This is no caretaker or administrative role; rather, joining at these formative stages presents the opportunity to chart the course. The Y-RISE Director will report to the Faculty Director (Mushfiq Mobarak, Professor of Economics, Yale University), but operate with significant autonomy and discretion. As such, this position is ideal for someone who is self-directed, self-motivated, and excited about the potential of research and policy to address poverty around the world.

The Director will support and participate in research. This support will take several forms, including the recruitment and allocation of research support staff and the maintenance of Y-RISE’s network of scholars. The Director will oversee and improve key activities including conferences, grantmaking, and research support staff. In collaboration with network scholars, the Director will produce research and / or policy outputs. S/he will also manage relationships with donors.

Periodic travel, both domestic and international, in support of Y-RISE mission is anticipated.
