Data Analyst job description

The Tishman Environment and Design Center seeks a skilled Data Analyst to play a critical role in the United Network for Impact, Transformation, and Equity in Environmental Justice Communities (UNITE-EJ) consortium. This consortium, led by the Climate Justice Alliance (CJA), plays a pivotal role as a national pass-through grantmaker for the Environmental Protection Agency’s Thriving Communities Grantmaking Program (TCGM). UNITE-EJ is the National-West grantmaking partner in the TCGM program and will support EPA Regional GrantMakers (RGMs) for regions 8, 9, and 10 and co-coordinate TCGM nationally with the National-Center and National-East partners.

The Unite-EJ Data Analyst position will be integral to the Center’s responsibilities in the consortium, focusing on collating data and creating reports to the EPA that track and evaluate the progress of subrecipients and the impact of pass-through funding. The Data Analyst will work under the Project Manager's supervision to ensure that data-driven insights contribute to transforming disadvantaged and underserved communities into healthy, thriving ones. The position is offered as a fixed-term, three-year grant-funded contract under the EPA Thriving Communities Grantmaker (TCGM) program. Funding for the role past the three-year term will be dependent upon continued grant funding.

The New School is strongly committed to diversity and inclusion in the workplace and particularly seeks applications from members of underrepresented groups and candidates who share this commitment.
