>Academic Year 1997-1998
>
>Position Description:
>A vacancy currently exists in the position of Director of Research for the
>International Reading Association.  A search process for this important
>research position is underway.  To encourage a productive and creative
>transition that enhances the research function of the organization, the
>Association has created a one-year Scholar in Residence position.  The
>person fulfilling this role would be expected to:
>
>     - take a broad, fresh look at IRA's involvement in and commitment to
>research
>       and develop a vision for the role that IRA should play in the future
>in the area
>       of research,
>
>     - develop both a short- and long-term strategic plan for IRA's
>involvement in the
>       area of research,
>
>     - work cooperatively with the Officers, Board of Directors,
>Headquarters Staff,
>        and the Research Committee of IRA to increase IRA's involvement and
>        visibility in research,  and
>
>     - become familiar with the overall operations of the International Reading
>       Association in order to assist the Board of Directors and the Executive
>       Director in coordinating staff efforts that are related to research.
>
>Conditions of the Position:
>This position is quite separate and different from the position of the
>Director of Research.  The Scholar in Residence would not, for example,
>assume the administrative and day-to-day responsibilities of the Research
>Division.  Other staff would assume those responsibilities.  This is a
>one-year role, although the Scholar in Residence would be eligible to apply
>for the position of Director of Research if she or he chose to do so.
>
>Qualifications:
>     - An established, senior researcher with a strong record of scholarship.
>     - Creativity, with a broad vision for IRA's role in promoting and
>disseminating
>       research.
>     - Understanding and appreciation of a range of research paradigms.
>     - Excellent editorial and writing skills.
>     - Ability to relate well to people.
>     - Strong leadership capabilities with the ability to act decisively,
>forcefully, and
>       dynamically.
>     - A demonstrated, long-term commitment to the International Reading
>Association.
>
>Compensation:
>       Competitive and commensurate with qualifications.
