The Northeast Corridor Commission is seeking a highly motivated candidate to join its hard-working and enthusiastic staff. The Commission was established by Congress in the Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act of 2008 to coordinate the agencies that share the region’s core rail network. This position is intended to support a variety of Commission initiatives, giving the successful candidate broad exposure to many technical areas. The position will support implementation of the Northeast Corridor (NEC) Cost Allocation Policy that governs the allocation of over $1.3 billion in annual operating and capital costs and promotes coordination among the nine passenger railroads that operate on the NEC rail line. Specific responsibilities will include collecting, managing, and analyzing operating cost, train operations, and capital project data from transportation agencies located across the Northeast from Massachusetts to Virginia (and other data sources). The position will also support service and infrastructure planning activities related to the Commission’s Strategic Development Plan, a 15-year program to implement phase 1 of the Federal Railroad Administration’s selected alternative in the NEC FUTURE Tier 1 Record of Decision.
This role requires skills and experience in data processing and analytics, and communicating complicated technical information to lay audiences. Experience working in transportation, particularly public transportation, is beneficial.
This position is intended to be located in Washington, DC.
