The Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies (HCPDS) seeks a fulltime, PhD-level Project Manager (PM) for its research project entitled "Workplace Redesign for Worker Well-Being: Blueprint for Resilience," funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The study seeks to expand the definition of "worker well-being" as well as explore the current understanding of U.S. workplace policies, practices, and conditions that can improve worker well-being and reduce job strain. The goal is to provide novel insight into sustainable organizational-level practices that can be used to enhance worker well-being and assess if investing in employee well-being leads to better business and organizational outcomes. Project components include collecting primary data via a qualitative interview process with employees in low- to middle-wage occupations; reviewing the existing literature on interventions and policies that may influence worker well-being; synthesizing known findings to develop a set of "best practice" guidelines; and conducting a secondary data analysis to address specific project-related questions.

The PM will act as the single point of contact for this project. The desired candidate will have an administrative role as well as oversee the research, analysis, dissemination and other activities under the direction of Dr. Lisa Berkman, the project’s principal investigator, and co-PIs Dr. Laura Kubzansky at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Dr. Erin Kelly at the MIT Sloan School of Management.

The PM will drive all aspects of the study by managing the implementation of a comprehensive work plan and adhering to a timeline of deliverables. Visit our website for complete details on responsibilities, eligibility requirements, and application procedures.…
