The Council of the Humanities at Princeton University is seeking a dynamic and versatile candidate as Manager of the Program in Journalism, to start immediately.
The Journalism program makes its academic home in the Humanities Council, which fosters cutting-edge research; sponsors interdisciplinary, collaborative projects and innovative courses; and advocates for the humanities at Princeton and in the public conversation. We are a crossroads for humanistic inquiry, a platform for debate, and a meeting place for 16 humanities departments and more than 30 interdisciplinary programs. We are also known for our core values of innovation, public engagement, globalization, diversity, and inclusive excellence.
Under the supervision of the Councilâ™s Executive Director and the faculty director of Journalism, the Program Manager is responsible for all day-to-day operations of the Program in Journalism.
The Program in Journalism offers about 10 courses per year, taught by distinguished visiting journalists, as well as an occasional summer program abroad. Because the faculty is comprised entirely of visitors, the Manager will need to offer warm hospitality, empathy, and troubleshooting skills for journalists who are new to teaching and new to Princeton. The Manager will be responsible for managing all aspects of the program Seminars, including enrollments and logistics for guest speakers; overseeing events, including the annual orientation, senior colloquium, and faculty lunch talks; and preparing data and reports related to strategic planning for the program. The Manager will oversee logistical planning for local, domestic, and international class trips, which have taken students to Berlin, Athens, Paris, Mississippi, New Mexico, and Washington, D.C.
In collaboration with the Councilâ™s Communications Manager, the Manager will prepare content for program webpages, brochures, publicity, mailing lists, and reports. The Manager will support the Executive Director in conducting annual searches for visiting faculty and preparing agendas for the executive committee meetings. In collaboration with the Councilâ™s Assistant Manager for Finance and Administration, the Program Manager is responsible for financial management of the programâ™s budget and for ensuring that faculty and students have the necessary assistance to carry out their academic, research, and administrative duties. The Humanities Council is a team environment, and the Program Manager will likely be asked to assist with shared initiatives.
In addition, the Program Manager will oversee logistics and publicity for four or five Film Studies events each year, two executive committee meetings, and sporadic updates to the program website.
For full consideration, please submit a cover letter and resume by June 2, 2023. The position will remain open until filled.
