The MBTA is looking for a $220,000-a-year director to oversee its commuter rail system, effectively establishing a permanent replacement for the newly created role it just launched with ex-general manager Dan Grabauskas.

Signed to a one-year contract in late August, Grabauskas officially started last Monday on a deal that will pay him $30,000 a month as an independent contract managing the T’s $2.69 billion contract with private operator Keolis.

The T had already started a search for a full-time director days earlier, advertising for a job that, at up to $220,000 a year, could make the new hire one of the T’s highest paid full-time positions after general manager Luis Ramirez and deputy general manager Jeff Gonneville.
