Outreach Coordinator

IPUMS - Ongoing Fall 2020

The Institute for Social Research and Data Innovation (ISRDI) is a University-wide research institute that provides a vibrant and highly collaborative interdisciplinary research environment for four interrelated research centers (IPUMS, the Minnesota Population Center, the Life Course Center, and the Minnesota Research Data Center). IPUMS develops and disseminates census and survey data to more than 100,000 researchers worldwide. This role facilitates user support and outreach as part of the IPUMS research group, and will also collaborate with the Life Course Center to connect and support members of research communities.

We are hiring an outreach coordinator to support IPUMS data dissemination for current and potential data users and target outreach to specific research communities. The core focus of both tasks is introducing IPUMS data to new users and supporting IPUMS use among diverse communities of scholars. These diversity goals include expanding to a broader range of academic disciplines, supporting usage at a variety of institutional settings, and increasing usage among under-represented scholars. The outreach coordinator reports to the User Support & Outreach Manager, and is part of the research group. You will work closely with the ISRDI administrative group, and will also interact with our IT group, other ISRDI center directors, advisory board members, conference organizers, and vendors. Occasional travel to academic conferences may be required in the future.
