A Twitter chat is like a meeting on Twitter; it has a specific discussion topic and a scheduled start time. Using the hashtag #MilCents at the end of each tweet, MFAN will ask questions to a group of financial experts.
The Military Family Advisory Network (MFAN) is seeking a full-time deputy director of research.
MFAN is a nonprofit with a simple mission: connect military and veteran families to resources designed to serve them. What makes us unique is how we do it.
All of our efforts are grounded in research. We convene leaders and influencers in the military community to help us understand what military families need now, assist us in making families aware of the resources that are already out there, and support us in delivering solutions when there are gaps in support.
We conduct national surveys to evaluate the status of support programming among our population, and the effects of military service on family life. We are also agile – we field studies quickly when we need answers. Recent work evaluated military families’ experiences living in privatized military housing, a study that was cited repeatedly by members of the Senate Armed Services Committee. We have been invited to present our findings at the White House, the Pentagon, and on Capitol Hill.
The deputy research director will be part of the team developing research plans from data collection and analysis to reporting results and data visualization. We are looking for a candidate who is detail-oriented and who will maintain the highest standards of accuracy and objectivity in research. Someone who is a self-starter, equally comfortable working independently or with a team.
Position would include, but not be limited to, the following:
