seeking a highly motivated, organized Program Coordinator to support our educational programs
Are you a highly organized logistics whiz with a passion for helping programs succeed? Are you eager to join a small and fast-moving team working to advance technology in the public interest?
The Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University seeks a highly motivated, organized Program Coordinator to support our educational programs, including the Assembly program. Assembly brings together technologists, managers, policymakers, and students across disciplines and sectors to better understand, and make progress on, complex issues at the intersection of technology and society.
This year, Assembly will take up disinformation in the digital public sphere from a cybersecurity perspective, exploring the challenges and prospective upside of potential public and private sector responses to disinformation and related problems of foreign interference in elections. Previously, the programs addressed cybersecurity, privacy, and AI ethics and governance.
The Program Coordinator will be a key piece of an energetic and enthusiastic team that leads the Assembly program, reporting to the program’s Project Manager. The Program Coordinator role involves administrative, planning, logistical, and strategic support for the programs. During any given month, this might include: reviewing applications, supporting the program’s communications efforts, coordinating events, researching speakers, and providing key logistical and operational support. Read more about last year’s Assembly program participants - from industry, government, and civil society - and learn more about their projects.
This role will bring many opportunities to learn about issues related to disinformation, designing educational programs, strategic management, and other related topics and skills. The Program Coordinator will join the Berkman Klein Center’s world-class community of scholars and practitioners, and work in close collaboration with Berkman Klein staff, faculty, and community members to advance interdisciplinary, cutting-edge programs related to the study and development of technology and society.
