Job Description

Department UL Urban Education Lab About the Department Who We Are: The University of Chicago Education Lab is an independent research organization that designs, tests, and scales programs and practices that advance student learning and opportunity. By generating cutting-edge evidence in a real-world setting, we create insights that can be applied both in the classroom and in the community. Our team works in close partnership with school districts, using data to identify interventions that can have transformative impact in practice, not just in theory. We collaborate with schools beyond pilot projects by applying rigorous research methods to determine whether promising programs can work at large scale – district-, city-, or state-wide: a critical component to having a lasting impact on education outcomes. Our work is increasingly urgent: Despite the progress we have made in public education, schools still fail to address the unique barriers many students face to learning and opportunity. As a result, one-fifth of America’s high school students do not graduate, affecting their future health, earnings, and safety. In cities across the country, the barriers preventing students from learning and opportunity have a disproportionate impact on Black and low-income students. School systems must rethink their approach. The Education Lab helps them do exactly that. We advance learning through new approaches that personalize student instruction, which is increasingly important in settings serving diverse student populations. We also work on addressing out-of-school barriers that impact student success, including the harms of trauma exposure, homelessness, and gun violence. To learn more about the Education Lab, visit https://urbanlabs.uchicago.edu/labs/education.
