The Immigration Policy Lab (IPL) designs and evaluates policies to advance the integration of immigrants and refugees worldwide. By producing new evidence and translating it into creative solutions, we seek to improve refugees’ and immigrants’ opportunities and strengthen their host communities. Using new data and cutting-edge analytical tools, we bring evidence to bear on the urgent problems facing immigrants, refugees, and their service providers.

With branches at Stanford University and ETH Zurich, our talented team of faculty, professional staff, postdocs, and students has created a research model that combines the rigor of an academic lab with the innovation of a civic-tech startup.

IPL is seeking a new Executive Director (ED) to lead and advance the Stanford branch at this pivotal moment. Working in collaboration with IPL’s faculty co-directors at Stanford, the ED is responsible for setting and executing the strategic vision for a globally recognized social science lab, while also managing seamless programmatic and scientific operations.

This is a two-year fixed-term position with possibility of renewal based on performance and funding. Please note that the expectation is that the position will be required to be located on campus and a full-time remote position are not possible. IPL will offer some flexibility for a hybrid on-site/work from home arrangement.
