Position Description

Founded in 2007, the Harmony Institute (HI) is dedicated to both the study of mass communication and media effects on individuals and society, and the transfer of these insights to social scientists, data scientists, media professionals, impact funders, and other civic stakeholders. The programs at HI perform and aggregate compelling research in behavioral economics, cognitive psychology, computer science, and other research fields that are rich with insights about media impact, and make this information accessible to a wide variety of audiences.

The Partnerships and Engagement Manager will be a key member of HI’s design and development team, will play an important role in the day-to-day operations of the new StoryPilot media impact app (SP), and will otherwise help establish HI as a leader in the field of scientific evaluation of media impact. In this role, the ACLS Public Fellow will help HI leverage external partners ranging from foundations, producers, and industry experts, to users of the application, and will support all types of stakeholders to find new ways to apply media for social impact.
