Carnegie Corporation of New York ("the Corporation") was established by Andrew Carnegie in 1911 “to promote the advancement and diffusion of knowledge and understanding.” It is one of the oldest, largest, and most influential American grantmaking foundations.
The Corporation seeks a dynamic, entrepreneurial expert to serve as Program Officer to lead its grantmaking on nuclear security and risk reduction, as part of the International Peace and Security Program within the International Program.
The Corporation’s International Program advances knowledge and seeks a more peaceful world through policy-relevant research and outreach, capacity building, dialogues, and public-private partnerships. The Corporation is a leading philanthropic actor on nuclear security issues, with annual investments of some $10 million per year and three decades of successful partnerships with governments and international organizations.
The Program Officer must possess a deep understanding of nuclear weapons policy and the international security landscape. The ideal candidate will have experience working in at least one senior position in government, academia, journalism, or in a nongovernmental organization. Applicants should have experience in policy research, communications, and in program design, strategy, and evaluation. Ideal candidates will have a track record of overseeing project implementation, effectively working in teams, and managing against deadlines and budgets.
This position affords an opportunity to lead the process of designing, executing, and overseeing a grant portfolio to prevent the spread or use of nuclear weapons. The Corporation has a long history of high-impact partnerships to reduce nuclear risk. Recent initiatives improved the sector’s capacity for innovation, strengthened the Nuclear Security Summit process, and stimulated new thinking about the effects of technological change on arms control and crisis management.
