Apply to work at CAST!
As Chief Science Officer in this largely outward facing executive position, you will lead the expansion and revisioning of CAST’s role in applied research and development for the next generation. Internally, you will lead and optimize our 20-person research and development team as we expand our knowledge of learning diversity and universally designed pedagogy.
Collaborating with our professional learning and technical assistance teams, you will embed exemplary research in our implementation projects and partnerships, ensuring that the results of our research are widely and optimally disseminated through both professional publications and exemplary learning technologies, policies, and practices.
Externally, you will expand your own network of professional partnerships within relevant applied research domains, ensuring that all of CAST’s work is optimally visible and interconnected within larger networks of educational research and reform. You will elevate our overall success by securing and managing the full life cycle of federal and privately secured funding for research, development, and evaluation. Overall, your goal is to provide a supportive environment for a cycle of exemplary research to practice and back again, a cycle that will continue to move the needle by impacting learners everywhere for years to come.
