Now Hiring: Title VI Grant Progress Evaluator
The American Center of Research, a nonprofit institution dedicated to advancing knowledge of Jordan and the interconnected region, past and present, seeks an Grant Progress Evaluator for its Title VI grant, The ACOR Digital Archive: A Multimedia Teaching and Learning Resource. The ideal candidate will have prior experience with digital library platforms, metadata standards, and metadata creation (preferred experience with multilingual metadata). The position will entail assessing the Title VI grant’s progress in relation to its objectives and targets. This includes assessing its digital library platform and potential alternatives, as well as how metadata, usability, and outreach can be improved. The position will be remote and is intended to help the organization continue to grow. The job is a service agreement expected to be one month per year for two years.
The impact of project outcomes will be formatively assessed, including tracking of project achievement outside the scope of the project, such as former Educator Fellows achieving advanced academic positions.
The ideal candidate will have ten years of experience working with digital libraries and collections. As part of the Title VI grant, the candidate will complete two evaluations.
The Evaluator will submit reports detailing the project based on performance metrics in two ways:
- Annual summative reporting to the Department of Education.
- Project evaluations at the midpoint and at the end, to provide an external assessment of the project’s progress and how well it is meeting the stated objectives and targets (as outlined in the project management framework).
The two project evaluation reports described above will be due in 2023 and 2024.

Any combination of relevant education and experience will be considered. In all cases, the following are required:
