Director of Programs

San Francisco, California, United States


The Project for Education Research That Scales (PERTS) is an applied research center at Stanford University. PERTS was founded in 2010 to translate insights from the psychological and developmental sciences into scalable resources that educators everywhere can use to foster students’ natural drive to learn. We empower educators to improve the quality and equity of students’ learning experiences so that all students are inspired and equipped to learn and thrive.

We’re looking for a highly motivated Director of Programs who enjoys working in a fast-paced and frequently changing environment. This is a full time position. Our office is located in San Francisco, but remote work arrangements can be made for the right candidate. The role will require travel.

The Director of Programs is needed to spearhead PERTS programs/initiatives to scale including: (1) developing/expanding programs where there is demand and content readily available; (2) leading the planning of program development/implementation; (3) managing cross-team collaboration efforts internally and relationships with current/potential collaborators. This position will report to the Executive Director and work closely with all members of the team.
