Brush off those resumes. Stanford is looking for an Executive Director to head up its Immigration Policy Lab. Unfamiliar with IPL? They've made a helpful introductory video to introduce themselves:
Here's how they describe the Executive Director role:
We are looking for an experienced leader with in-depth knowledge of immigration policy and/or research; who values the rigor of the scientific process; who can articulate the importance of quantitative research to diverse stakeholders and audiences; and who also will deepen IPL’s focus on policy and social impact. The ED will manage the day-to-day operations of the lab and guide a team of professional staff that includes research program managers, a data scientist, a communications director, and a finance/operations manager. The ED will provide training opportunities for postdocs, graduate students, and undergraduates and continue to grow and manage an active community of affiliated researchers from top universities. The ED will also be IPL’s leading public voice, whether at Stanford convenings or international summits. Further, the ED will collaborate closely with the leadership team of the IPL branch at ETH Zurich to build and implement a common vision and community across both branches.
