Associate Director C

Job Description

Since its inception at Penn, PPE has been popular and today it is one of the largest majors in the College of Arts and Sciences. The major offers an integrated, cross-disciplinary education that combines broad and rigorous training in the foundations of its allied disciplines.

The Associate Director promotes the activities of the Program in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) through a variety of means, including: partnering with faculty to find, develop, prepare, and manage research grants; advising prospective and current students, including the day-to-day coordination/advising of the undergraduate major and identifying appropriate faculty mentors; facilitating PPE seminars and lectures in the BeLab; and working collaboratively with SAS Office of Advancement and staff in Development and Alumni Relations to engage students, faculty, donors, alumni and external organizations. With oversight from the SAS Office of Advancement, the Associate Director works to develop a targeted program for engaging its alumni and potential donors. This will be accomplished by focusing on creating opportunities for alumni to reconnect with the program and with one another, effectively articulating the program's mission, obtaining accurate contact information on PPE alumni, and where possible, capitalizing on opportunities to introduce PPE to a broader SAS alumni and donors audience. In consultation with the College Dean and the SAS Office of Advancement, articulate funding needs for the program.


Bachelor's degree with three to five years of experience, or equivalent combination of education and experience, is required.  Master's degree or PhD in PPE-related disciplines, including psychology, is strongly preferred, as is an interdisciplinary research background related to PPE.  Experience in academic advising preferred. Must have the ability to communicate with a diverse population and across all levels of the organization. Strong verbal communication skills required. Must also demonstrate excellent writing and editing skills. Previous experience working with international non-profit programs and organizations and grants preferred. Strong interpersonal skills, ability to work independently, strong initiative and ability to develop programs essential. Previous budget management and fund-raising experience a plus.
