About the Organization
Yale University invites applications for its first Y-RISE Executive Director’s position starting on July 1st, 2018. The Yale Initiative Research on Innovation and Scale (Y-RISE) is a new research initiative that will support research and scale solutions to shepherd promising antipoverty programs. The main goal of Y-RISE is to develop the science behind scaling up effective interventions, define that emerging research agenda, and scale-up a few promising interventions in the process. To do so, Y-RISE will build research networks, host academic network meetings and conferences, connect researchers to implementing partners, and make seed grants to develop new research. Y-RISE research will have direct policy implications, advancing efforts to bring the most good to the most people, so we publicize and advocate the policy lessons from our research.
