"This opening is within the Library and Scholarly Communications program. Team members in our Library and Scholarly Communication program conduct and publish major research projects and consult with academic libraries, scholarly publishers, learned societies, and museums. We help these organizations better support scholarship, instruction, and student success by empowering them to gather and to effectively utilize evidence that supports good strategic decision-making about direction and service offerings. We also do independent research and publishing in two areas: strategy and leadership for the academic library and other academic support services (including organizational structure, talent management and employee diversity, budgeting, and cross-institutional collaborations); and scholarly publishing and content provision and access (including collections, preservation, and discovery). Our team has methodological expertise in survey research, ethnography and other qualitative methods, and administrative data-gathering.
As Ithaka S+R’s Assessment Associate, you will take responsibility for the day-to- day operation of a variety of survey projects and products. You will work directly with libraries and universities to field surveys that provide valuable evidence to inform their strategies and the services they provide to students and faculty members. As part of a project team for a given research project, you will field surveys that provide valued information about faculty attitudes and practices and the leadership and strategic directions of major institutions. Also, you will support market research and advisory projects for academic libraries, scholarly publishers, and learned societies. This is a unique opportunity to contribute to survey research that drives innovation in higher education."
