CITAP Executive Director

The executive director will have the opportunity to develop a world-class research center in collaboration with four high-profile faculty members from the UNC School of Information and Library Science (SILS), UNC Hussman School of Journalism, and UNC Department of Communication, along with partners from the UNC School of Law and other campus units. In addition to providing strategic leadership, the director will help set development goals, interface with existing and potential funders, oversee the day-to-day operations of the center, and represent the center’s mission and research to a broad set of audiences including academics, media, and the public. This is not a research position and the director is not expected to conduct original research.

We hope that candidates from the private and public sector will consider this position, as well as those from the academy. Learn more and apply at


CITAP’s institutional structure and research streams are designed to attract world-class faculty, post-doctoral scholars, graduate and undergraduate students, and leaders in technology and media industries. We will create a space for discussion and debate as well as the development of practical and pragmatic solutions to address the challenges posed by our increasingly mediated digital public sphere.
