Here’s the skinny.
WGBH Education — a leader in educational media for young people, educators, and caregivers — seeks an experienced education professional to lead funding and strategic development for our work.
Reporting to the Executive Director of Education and working with team members, the Director of Strategic Development will be responsible for conceptualizing and researching new projects, identifying appropriate partners, and developing financial and other support for Education Department projects.
The Director will also help chart departmental strategy driving toward educational impact among underserved populations.
We’re looking for entrepreneurial candidates with strong grant-writing and fundraising experience, deep understanding of local and national education landscapes and government agencies, as well as familiarity with strategic project development and innovative business models for revenue generation. Also essential are communication, collaboration, analytic, and organizational skills.
Experience with STEM and/or social studies education is a plus.
WGBH is Boston’s PBS.
WGBH is seeking creators with expertise in many forms of animation — 2D cartoons, animated GIFs, 3D animation, motion graphics, game engine filmmaking, augmented reality — to work inside WGBH as Creative Residents on new digital programming in a new studio called Launchpad at WGBH.
Launchpad is currently focused on formats related to science media and aims to reach and inform a diversity of audiences, but animators don’t need to have expertise in science. For each of Launchpad’s Fall 2018 cycles, WGBH will select up to 5 Creative Residents to receive a $2,000 stipend to work on new programs for a duration of 3 weeks.
The next deadlines are Friday September 14, 2018 (for October 2018) and Friday October 12, 2018 (for November 2018).
