The Shared-Use Mobility Center (SUMC) is a non-profit public interest organization promoting multi-modal transportation systems that work for all. Through pilot projects, research, capacity-building, and advocacy, SUMC helps communities realize a vision of an equitable and sustainable mobility future.
SUMC is looking for a Research Analyst to join the Los Angeles Office. SUMC is expanding its Los Angeles Office to serve a growing set of programs that include program evaluation and learning components. These capacity building programs disseminate knowledge and resources throughout a rapidly-growing mobility ecosystem of public agencies, community-based organizations, Native American tribes, and private sector mobility providers.
Foremost among these programs is California Clean Mobility Options Voucher Pilot Program (CMO). CMO is a partnership with the California Air Resources Board to support zero-emission shared mobility pilots in the State’s disadvantaged communities. SUMC works in partnership with CALSTART as the CMO Program Administrator, delivering approximately $35M in funding and capacity-building resources to disadvantaged and low-income communities across California in pursuit of mobility equity goals.
The Research Analyst will work closely with the Strategic Lead for California and Western Programs and SUMC’s California and Chicago-based teams to support the organization’s growing capacity-building programs. The position presents a rare opportunity to work across the public and private sectors to shape equity indicators, metrics, and processes to impact the future of mobility around climate and social equity goals. SUMC staff are responsible for a wide range of duties in a thoughtful, creative, fast-paced atmosphere.
Depending on the needs at the time, the Research Analyst will primarily be responsible for coordinating program evaluation efforts including developing processes to facilitate data collection management tasks, analyzing data, and delivering technical assistance around data collection. Additional relevant subject matter is wide-ranging and may include transportation planning, community engagement, procurement, public-private partnerships, accessibility, data management, and innovative technology, such as trip-planning software and electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
