Associate Director

Location: Washington, DC

The Knight-Georgetown Institute (KGI) is seeking its first Associate Director. KGI was recently established to translate research about technology and the online information environment for policy and industry audiences, and to connect and convene academics with policy stakeholders. The Associate Director will be a central member of KGI’s small start-up team, helping to bring the vision of the institute to life. This role will involve substantive technology policy and research synthesis work, strategic direction and oversight for KGI’s events and publications, and some operations support during KGI’s formative phase. The Associate Director will be a thought partner and close collaborator with KGI’s Executive Director in defining and executing the institute’s work program.

The Associate Director is expected to be an experienced professional with a successful track record in technology policy, research, or practice. This role will span all of KGI’s focus areas: tech platform regulation and design, generative AI and public trust, and competition issues in tech.  This position offers the opportunity to shape high-impact policy analysis and research synthesis, and to engage with decision makers in government, industry, and the media. KGI is a brand new organization and the person taking on this role will have the opportunity to help build KGI’s presence and reputation at the intersection of policy and research.  

The Associate Director will report to the Executive Director and work collaboratively across the small but growing organization, including with KGI’s Research Director, Policy Analyst, and graduate student affiliates. The KGI team works in hybrid mode at present, splitting our time between our Washington, DC office and working remotely.
