    • Maintain awareness of key public opinion trends and communicate them to internal teams both to inform campaign strategies and to help determine plans of action for future research.
    • Provide support to the Director, Associate Director, and/or external consultants for drafting requests for proposals, discussion guides, survey instruments, data analysis, and written or graphical reports.
    • Collaborate with our communications team to review documents (e.g., press releases, media advisories, op-eds, etc.) related to Navigator Research releases or other publicly-released research.
    • Work with the Director and Associate Director to continue expansion of The Hub Project’s capacity for advanced quantitative assessment.
    • Perform other duties as assigned
