Director of Public Health Research
Founded in 2005, Mission Measurement (MM) is the world leader in measuring and reporting outcomes for the social sector. Our data, tools, and advisory services have helped thousands of nonprofits around the world to increase their impact. Many of the world’s leading corporations, governments, and foundations have also used our tools to invest in effective social programming. In 2014, we launched the Impact Genome Project® (IGP) – the industry’s largest evidence base of published and unpublished research across 11 social sector domains – to identify the specific program strategies that lead to positive social outcomes. This pioneering effort underpins MM’s unique suite of data products and tools that enable impact reporting, resource allocation, and systematic learning for the sector.
Mission Measurement is looking for an exceptional Director of Public Health Research to join our Impact Genome Project team. This is a highly analytical and research-oriented position for those interested in working hands-on to help Public Health behavioral (non-clinical) practitioners achieve better outcomes. They will do this by using evidence to build common languages for describing outcomes, intervention components, and context commonly seen in Public Health programs. This common language will lay the foundation for a range of applications including: meta-analyses that show not only what interventions works, but for whom and in which contexts; an infrastructure for collective impact; increasing nonprofit capacity for self-evaluation; democratizing access to research findings; and helping government and private funders make decisions based on outcomes data, not outputs or program activities. This individual will ensure that findings from the IGP are properly communicated to the field via both academic and popular articles. A qualified candidate will have strong research synthesis and writing skills, and experience with meta-analysis and program evaluation. Ultimately, the main goal of the Director is to identify and spread effective program practices, so the entire sector can achieve better outcomes.
