The Immigration Policy Lab (IPL) designs and evaluates policies
to advance the integration of immigrants and refugees worldwide. By
producing new evidence and translating it into creative solutions,
we seek to improve refugees’ and immigrants’ opportunities and
strengthen their host communities. Using new data and cutting-edge
analytical tools, we bring evidence to bear on the urgent problems
facing immigrants, refugees, and their service providers.
With branches at Stanford University and ETH Zurich, our
talented team of faculty, professional staff, postdocs, and
students has created a research model that combines the rigor of an
academic lab with the innovation of a civic-tech startup.
Following five years of rapid development and growth since our
launch in 2016, IPL is seeking a
new Executive Director (ED) to lead and advance the Stanford
branch at this pivotal moment.
Working in collaboration with IPL’s faculty co-directors at
Stanford, the ED is responsible for
setting and executing the strategic vision for a globally
recognized social science lab, while also
managing seamless programmatic and scientific operations.
This is a two-year fixed term position. Renewal will be based on
performance and funding. Please note that there is a strong
preference for the position to be located within commuting distance
of Stanford's campus, so that the ED can be "in person" at least 2
days/week, but we would consider candidates who work remotely and
are willing to travel to campus regularly (e.g. monthly).
