AIR is currently seeking a Researcher to join our Education Statistics program area within AIR’s Human Services Division to aid us with improving outcomes in Education.  The Researcher will support our Center for Process Data and the use of data science methods to support the improvement of measuring and reporting state and federal data, both structured and unstructured.   The Center for Process Datafocuses on supporting the data structure, data pipeline, and data analysis of the large amounts of data collected from educational assessments. This data, called “process data”, reflects the students’ interactions with the assessment and the system in which interactions occur and can provide insights to improve student outcomes as well as assessment development.   The Center for Process Data combines programming, advanced analytics, and educational research to turn raw data into meaningful information to advance educational assessments. Our work includes: building algorithms and designing experiments to merge, manage, integrate, and extract useful data; identifying issues and using data to propose solutions for effective decision making throughout the assessment cycle; using machine learning tools and statistical techniques to produce solutions to address issues that would otherwise be found hard to resolve; conducting explorations/research from which we develop prototypes and proof of concepts.   In addition, AIR supports several federal statistical agencies and data centers, such as the Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics and the Office of the Chief Data Officer, the National Science Foundation’s National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics, and the Institute of Library and Museum Services. Our work with these agencies supports the implementation of the Federal Evidence Act, which provides a statutory framework to advance using evidence and data to make decisions at all levels of government. We are looking for candidates to support this work in a range of efforts including data management (e.g., design, collection, linking, storing, editing and cleaning, privacy protections), data analytics (e.g., employing machine learning, artificial intelligence, natural language processing), and data analysis and visualization to interpret and disseminate findings.   Candidates hired for this new position might initially start working remotely but will ultimately have the option to work from one of our offices located in the DC, Chicago (IL), Boston (MA), Oakland (CA), Austin (TX), Chapel Hill (NC), and Seattle (WA) metro areas, or continue to work remotely.   About AIR:   Established in 1946, with headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, AIR is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit institution that conducts behavioral and social science research and delivers technical assistance to solve some of the most urgent challenges in the U.S. and around the world.
