The Achievement & Assessment Institute (AAI) at the University of Kansas exists to improve the performance of children, adults, and organizations throughout local, state, and national communities. AAI currently includes ten centers, which represent a diversity of services and programs and supports faculty research, both in the School of Education and Human Sciences and other academic units. AAI centers are strongly mission driven, but also are significantly more entrepreneurial than a typical university research center. The AAI mission is accomplished in five primary ways.
 

  • Partnering with local, state, national, and global communities to apply scholarship to implement programs with direct public impact.
  • Developing and publishing generalizable knowledge that allows leveraging of the solutions developed so that the success of the first part of our mission is magnified.
  • Providing faculty with the support and encouragement they need to generate resources for research and development in support of enhanced achievement of individuals and organizations.
  • Providing students with experiences vital to their professional development.
  • The Institute and its centers also provide opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to obtain valuable research and on-the-job employment experience while completing coursework.

The Proposal Coordinator – AAI Projects will be a crucial member of the AAI Central Office team. This position will assist the AAI Associate Director for Finance and Administration to carry out the mission of the Institute. The incumbent plays a key role in the management and coordination of sponsored projects in the Achievement and Assessment Institute (AAI). The incumbent will work collaboratively with a team that performs both pre-award and post award management functions for AAI in a highly agile environment, while working directly with investigators and other research administration, finance, and HR administrators. This salaried position will manage research administration activity for their assigned portfolio and serve as the administrative liaison between the university and sponsor regarding all pre-award activities. The position will allow the candidate flexibility and support to utilize advanced problem-solving and analytical skills to grow and innovate the business processes for delivering services and providing resources for AAI investigators, while facilitating administrative ownership of the project from proposal to award closeout.
