Employment & Internship Opportunities

ACLS is seeking to fill two program officer openings in our US Programs division. At least one should have supervisory experience.

Program officers in US Programs manage the design, implementation, and administration of programs that offer support to scholars nationally and internationally, working both inside and beyond the academy. They maintain and enhance our peer-review processes, uphold standards of inclusive excellence, recruit peer reviewers, facilitate deliberations of selection committees, and present the results of fellowship programs and supported research to foundation funders, ACLS's constituencies, and the wider public.

In addition to administering all aspects of our fellowships and grants, program officers organize or support events and convenings for scholars, education leaders, fellows and ACLS constituents; and analyze and draft reports on our activities to funders and the board.

The program officer will work closely with members of the US Programs team and other staff across the organization on a variety of activities that enhance ACLS’s ability to serve our community and advance scholarship in new directions. We welcome applications from individuals who will bring new backgrounds, perspectives, and types of professional and personal experience to our team.
