Project Coordinator

Are you interested in improving service and support systems for people with disabilities and older people? Do you want to work for an established and nationally recognized nonprofit focused on making public support systems equitable and better for the people they are designed to support? Come join a dynamic and mission-driven team at Human Services Research Institute.

Who We Are

The Human Services Research Institute is a nonprofit, mission-driven organization that provides high-quality research, evaluation, technical assistance, and data and statistical services primarily to government agencies to improve public health services and systems. We work at the local, state, and federal levels to help develop measures and data collection instruments and protocols, to conduct analysis, and to develop implementation strategies. Our goal is to help public agencies understand and demonstrate the real-world impact of the services they provide, helping them transform their policies and practices to produce meaningful outcomes. We believe in the value of equitable and community-based person-centered services.

We are an equal opportunity employer. We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. The more inclusive we are, the better our work will be, and we encourage people from all backgrounds to apply. This is a remote position but with the eventual option of working from our Cambridge, Massachusetts office, which is accessible by public transportation.
