About the Organization

Yale University invites applications for its Y-RISE Program and Communications Manager’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.

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.
