In recent years, our society has become increasingly divided. Rather than appreciating our differences, all too often, people are viewing the world through an "us versus them" lens. OpenMind works to address these issues by translating the best behavioral science research into practicable, scalable, and evidence-based tools that equip people with the mindset and skillset to communicate and collaborate across differences. Our tools are built for use in many contexts, including workplaces, universities, and communities.
OpenMind is a non-partisan, non-profit organization that was co-founded by the social psychologist Jonathan Haidt, the author of the bestselling books The Righteous Mind and The Coddling of the American Mind. Since launching in 2017, our online program has reached more than 45,000 people in more than 900 classrooms, as well as 100+ organizations and companies, across more than 15 countries.
We are looking for a Research Director to spearhead OpenMind’s efforts to develop and validate evidence-based interventions to help people bridge divides. The Research Director will be part of the leadership team and will be responsible for developing and executing OpenMind’s research agenda.
The ideal candidate is a business-savvy Ph.D. with experience leading multi-modal research projects in organizational settings. The Research Director will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of research across the organization, including large-scale mixed-methods research projects with clients, developing assessments, overseeing randomized controlled trials, and leading our data analytics function. The Research Director will also work closely with our content and product teams to build the most effective learning solutions.
