Tufts University is located across four campuses comprised of approximately 250 buildings totaling 5.5 million gross square feet of space. Campus and Capital Renewal Planning (Planning), within Tufts' Operations Division, supports the mission of the university through the development of both near- and long-term plans that enable the strategic use of buildings, campus infrastructure, and land. The university 30,000-record database of detailed information on all university buildings, land, and space is maintained within the Planning department for access by multiple departments across Tufts and by strategic partners such as consultants, architects, and construction managers.
The Property Data Analyst reports to the Director of Campus and Capital Renewal Planning (Planning) and works in close collaboration with the planners within the department as well as with colleagues in Operations – Capital Programs, Real Estate, Facilities, and Finance – and across the university – Deans' offices, Institutional Research, Tufts Technology Services, and Registrars. This high-visibility position functions with minimal supervision and requires a combination of both communication and technical skills. Data analyses, particularly but not limited to Excel, is a high priority given the reporting responsibilities, the need to produce materials for multiple audiences including university leadership, and the frequency of data queries from within and outside the university. Operating with a high level of autonomy, the position is solely responsible for accuracy, collection, management, archival, and dissemination of Tufts' property database – primarily spatial data and floor plans but also maps, surveys, architectural models, and studies. Project and personnel management skills are helpful in the production of materials, often developed by student interns, and when leading planning initiatives related to spatial data. The position is the primary support staff for Tufts' new Space Planning and Advisory Committee (SPACe), a governance entity with cross-school membership tasked with creating university policies to foster collaboration in space use, improve space utilization, and increased consistency in practice.
Education: Bachelors' degree in business, math, architecture, building construction, planning, library science, or comparable

Experience: 5+ years experience with increasing responsibility for data analyses, reporting, and presentations to a variety of audiences, preferably in a campus planning environment
