Senior Research Associate, ETR

2. Reflections, Connections, Enthusiasm and One Really Great Luncheon!

Research Associate, ETR

ETR is a distributed workforce. This means we have four sites spread over three cities, along with a team of remote workers spread all over the country. This helps strengthen our ability to reach different populations and bring talented people on board who wouldn’t be able to commute to one of our physical offices.

If you work in the field of Equity and Inclusion in STEM, you’ll recognize this as a structural model that encourages greater diversity in a workforce.

At the same time, we expect education to give students skills they will need in the workplace.
