Worcester, MA (or remote)
As ASSISTments embarks on its next phase of growth and expansion, it seeks an experienced Project Director to join its team. This person will manage our new five-year Education, Innovation and Research (EIR) mid-phase grant from the U.S. Department of Education, designed to “scale-up” ASSISTments across the country. We seek applicants who are passionate about public education and supporting teachers, have exemplary project management and communication skills, have experience with federal grants processes, and above all, enjoy a “start-up” work mentality.
The Project Director must personally participate to a significant intellectual degree in the sponsored project and will report to, and work closely with, the CEO of The ASSISTments Foundation. He/She/They will also build strong relationships with the Chief Program Officer, Director of Product, grant Principal Investigator, and various grant partnering organizations.
Project Management & Leadership
Communications and Advocacy
We seek applicants who have experience managing educational grants and who are strong collaborators with a laser sharp attention to detail. Our ideal candidate has experience working in a non-profit or similar, with experience with project management and who thrives in a complex and muti-faceted environment.
This is a full time position and we are flexible about either local or a remote work environment. If the right person resides within commuting distance of our offices at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, the Project Director will work on campus. If this person is not local, we welcome remote employees (though the ability to visit WPI on occasion is a must). Successful candidates must possess U.S. work authorization.
