Position Description

Founded in 1981, the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) is an independent nonprofit organization defending journalists worldwide without regard to their political ideology. Through its work to safeguard journalists, CPJ protects the rights of all people to have access to diverse and independent sources of information. The Research Manager will guide CPJ’s research and ongoing education on emerging press freedom threats. Working closely with CPJ’s Program Director at the nexus of CPJ’s six regional programs, which cover Africa, North America, South and Central America, Asia, Europe and Central Asia, and the Middle East and North Africa, the Research Manager will support the reporting and research on emerging global threats to press freedom that cross regions. One of the Research Manager’s main priorities will be designing a research and reporting project around one emerging press freedom issue related to CPJ’s strategic priorities: reducing online harassment, combating “fake news” laws worldwide, election monitoring, and reporting on technology and press freedom.
