Graduate Research Associate

Nowak Metro Finance Lab

Position Overview

The Nowak Metro Finance Lab at the Lindy Institute for Urban Innovation at Drexel University is seeking applicants for a Graduate Research Associate internship for the summer of 2021. The Graduate Research Associate will work directly with Bruce Katz, the Director of the Nowak Metro Finance Lab, assisting the Director with original research and writing.

Founded in 2018, the Nowak Metro Finance Lab at Drexel University has strived to help cities and regions design, finance and deliver transformative initiatives to drive inclusive and equitable
growth. The Lab has a national network of reflective practitioners that enables it to capture and codify local innovations that can be scaled by working with multiple channels of investors and intermediaries (e.g., cities and mayors, business leadership groups, philanthropies, CDFIs, business accelerators for entrepreneurs of color). Its toolkit of best practice solutions to support under-served communities includes (a) development of new data tools to help cities customize solutions; (b) development of new financial models for cities and intermediaries; (c) knowledge and research to disseminate models; and (d) convening through planning and finance workshops designed to bring innovative solutions to urban challenges.

 

Since the onset of the pandemic, the Lab’s work has focused on understanding COVID’s impact on small businesses, pioneering city recovery playbooks to stabilize and grow Black- and Brown-owned businesses and aligning local action with federal investments and policies.

 

Summer 2021 projects include:

  1. Helping cities create Command Centers to coordinate and align federally backed investments for post pandemic recovery 
  2. Creating new models for small business ecosystems that can nurture, mentor, capitalize and grow businesses owned by people of color
  3. Codifying emerging financial products for private sector investors and public sector entities
  4. Codifying best practice solutions, in the US and beyond, around the regeneration of commercial corridors and disadvantaged neighborhoods
  5. researching and dispersing best practices for supplier diversity and MBE contracting in publicly-backed infrastructure projects [while narrow, I think there is a lot of material to be researched here]

 

The employment term will be for 2.5 to 3 months from the date of hire, with the opportunity to renew during the 2020-21 academic year based on performance and project funding. Selected candidates will be expected to work remotely due to the current pandemic circumstances and conduct periodic in-person meetings at the Lindy Institute’s offices in Philadelphia, PA, depending on imposed travel restrictions.

Compensation: Based on experience. The Graduate Research Associate is a non-exempt position eligible to work up to 40 hours per week.

Application Process: Interested Candidates should send a cover letter and resume/CV to mkt74@drexel.edu with the Subject Line “Graduate Research Associate.” No phone calls, please.

Applications due April 30, 2021
