Social Media RSS Feed en Operations Lead <p><font size="3"><font face="Arial">Although still in the design phase, the Accelerator is envisioned as a platform that will: (a) connect talented researchers and motivated practitioners around concrete problems, (b) house, resource, and support these partnerships, (c) gather evidence to identify potential interventions, (d) launch and evaluate interventions, and (e) scale promising solutions. These partnerships will span substantive areas including poverty and inequality, health and education, criminal justice, the environment, economic opportunity, governance and polarization, and national security. We call these partnerships problem-focused labs, and the university’s aspiration is to build an infrastructure that powers the application of social science to parallel an existing pipeline that drives innovation in industry.<br /> <br /> The Accelerator will also play a central role in rethinking how Stanford trains the next generation of researchers and students committed to tackling social and policy problems, whether through the private, social, or public sectors.<br /> <br /> Through applied research and new models of undergraduate and graduate education, our ambition is to reimagine the university as an engine for tackling real-world problems using the best data, evidence, and technology.<br /> <br /> The Operations Lead, with faculty support, will be responsible for developing an operational plan and managing a set of pilot activities (pilots may include a university-wide grants program, an open competition to identify government and non-profit partners, and an effort to spur curricular innovation).
