The Policing Project at New York University School of Law is seeking a full-time Program Manager to contribute to a series of cutting-edge national initiatives to reimagine public safety, advance racial justice, establish standards for fairness and equity for policing agencies, and advance gender parity in policing. The ideal candidate will hold a bachelor’s degree (master’s preferred) in a relevant discipline, be conversant in social science research, and have at least two years of experience contributing to programs, preferably related to criminal justice.

This position is a great fit for someone who is early career and seeking exposure to a broad range of police reform and criminal justice issues, while honing research, project management, and communication skills.  

Background on the Policing Project

The Policing Project partners with communities and local governments to promote public safety through transparency, equity, and democratic engagement. We work across a host of issues—from use of force and racial profiling, to facial recognition and predictive policing.

We are building several national initiatives to which this position will contribute. This position will join our reimagining public safety team to advance a series of research and pilot projects to develop an evidence-based framework to transform dispatch and response, empirically assess community needs and how best to meet them, and develop a wholistic framework for reimagining public safety that centers community priorities and minimizes reliance on force and enforcement. 

This position also is expected to support other related projects such as establishing basic minimum performance standards for fair, just, effective policing, relying heavily on social science research, constitutional law, and industry best practice. This position will also serve as a project and research associate for a national effort to advance gender parity in policing and ensure policing agencies effectively support the success of diverse officers.   

Job Description & Responsibilities:

This position will report to the Chief of Staff of the Policing Project and will be responsible for:

•       Planning and managing dozens of qualitative interviews across approximately ten study sites;

•       Contributing to funder reports and grant management activities, including contract management;

•       Attending relevant events and reporting out to organization leadership ;

•       Coordinating project meetings, notetaking, and ensuring follow up on action items;

•       Liaising with NYU and Policing Project operations teams;

•       Developing content for websites and drafting materials for practitioners and policymakers;

•       Planning and managing virtual and in-person events;

•       Working with and supervising undergraduate interns;

•       Contributing to substantive development of other priority projects as needed.

Desired Experience and Qualifications:

Above all, we are seeking to hire someone with relevant experience, a passion for advancing public safety, and an ability to work hard and proactively. In addition, we will consider the following qualifications when considering applicants:

•       Minimum of a bachelor’s degree (master’s preferred) in a social science or related discipline;

•       At least two years of professional experience, including experience contributing to research or programs; 

•       Experience with project management, particularly with multi-member/multi-team projects;

•       Strong familiarity with and/or interest in public safety, city government, and/or social services;

•       Experience coordinating logistics;

•       Strong written communications skills for varied audiences, and experience writing about scientific evidence and/or legal analysis;

•       Strong interpersonal skills;

•       Good judgment, and the ability to keep many balls in the air without dropping them;

•       Excellent organizational skills.

This position is currently full-time remote, but individuals with the ability to work out of Policing Project offices in New York City are strongly preferred.
