Description

The Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR), the world's largest archive of digital social science data, is now accepting applications for up to two Data Project Managers to oversee the management of data acquisition, archiving, and related projects. ICPSR makes thousands of curated datasets available for access, download, and analysis; provides training on using the datasets; and works with funding agencies and data producers to ensure that data of value are preserved and made available.

The work environment is a combination of the best aspects of a small nonprofit or business within a university setting. We have a relaxed, collegial atmosphere that fosters communication and networking within and between departments. We are family-friendly, offering flexible work hours, and we have a diverse staff that enriches the workplace with their experience.

In this role you may manage any of a variety of projects, including projects that focus on expanding access to health care data from several social science disciplines, disseminating education and childcare data, and serving the restricted data needs of the social science community. This also may involve expanding access to government data and data related to journal publications.
