One amazing thing about the college experience is how much more tech savvy you become in just a few short years. It’s hard to imagine getting through college without the help of tools such as the Internet that were developed by universities and government entities for research purposes. Although technological innovation still occurs at institutions of higher learning, there is a clear lack of integration, standardization, and collaboration between these institutions when it comes to information technology infrastructure. While for-profit companies often have the business-driven incentive to standardize technology, non-profit educational institutions typically overlook the power of a shared infrastructure.
Ithaka is a non-profit organization (NPO) that promotes information technology innovation, standardization, and collaboration in higher education. By supporting non-profit entrepreneurial initiatives, while also working with established institutions, Ithaka is able to offer support to institutions of higher education through its three main activities: Research, Strategic Services, and Administrative Support Services. Each of these branches of Ithaka develops relevant best practices that aid institutions in creating sustainable models for information technology infrastructure.
Ithaka also pursues its mission of innovation through hands on support of non-profit, entrepreneurial start-ups. Ithaka is currently working closely with two affiliates: JSTOR (an online archive of scholarly journals) and ARTstor (a digital repository of images related to art, architecture, the humanities, and social sciences). Ithaka is also incubating three offshoot projects: Aluka (a digital library of scholarly resources related to the developing world), NITLE (an organization advancing liberal arts education in the digital age), and Portico (a project focused on building a sustainable electronic archiving model).
If you have a deep interest in information technology, higher education, and consulting, Ithaka might be a great place for you to begin your career. Ithaka’s Strategic Services branch is currently looking to hire an Analyst. This branch offers consulting services such as Market Analysis, Business Model Development, and Evaluation of New Ventures to non-profit educational organizations. This is a clear-cut entry-level position for someone who desires the work experience of for-profit consulting, but is devoted to furthering the cause of innovation in higher education.
The Strategic Services Analyst position has a salary starting in the high 40’s with excellent benefits. It is located in Ithaka’s New York City office (other locations are Princeton, NJ and Ann Arbor, MI). If you would like to apply, send a resume and cover letter to Meredith Quinn at SSAnalyst@ithaka.org by November 30.
