Two Great Jobs Open at Center for Sustainable Journalism

The new Center for Sustainable Journalism at Kennesaw State University is pleased to announced two more job openings. One is for a:

Business Development Officer

The Business Development Officer will assist in commercializing sustainable journalism or media enterprises and will advance for-profit and nonprofit efforts aimed at promoting high quality, ethically sound journalism. The BDO will help move journalism research, concepts, funded projects and experimentation into self-sustaining entities. The BDO will do so by developing strategic business plans, helping raise capital, monitoring the progress of entities it helps start and providing guidance in maximizing the potential for follow-up funding from appropriate commercial, private or governmental sources. The BDO may provide consulting services to other entities when appropriate and when that consulting corresponds to the Center for Sustainable Journalism’s mission of providing high quality, ethically sound journalism. In this joint appointment between the Center and the Department of Communication, the BDO also will hold the academic title of Distinguished Lecturer in Professional Practice in this 12- month, non-tenured faculty appointment and have a one-one-one teaching load.

The Research Director will report to Leonard Witt, Executive Director of the Center, and work closely with the Center’s Director, its Business Development Officer and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences’ development officer and its grant writing specialist.  The Center aims to be an internationally recognized hub for research and development of business models that will provide sustainable journalism in the future.
