Senior Program Officer, Scholarly Communications, Mellon Foundation

“The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation (“Foundation”) invites nominations and applications for the position of Senior Program Officer (“SPO”) for Scholarly Communications (“SC”) to succeed Donald J. Waters, who is retiring after 20 years of dedicated and exceptional service.

The Foundation is a not-for-profit, grantmaking organization that seeks to strengthen, promote, and defend the contributions of the humanities and the arts to human flourishing and to the well-being of diverse and democratic societies. Scholarly Communications, which was established under the Foundation’s umbrella in 1999, is one of the Foundation’s four core program areas. Through this program, the Foundation assists libraries, archives, museums, universities, presses, and arts organizations in realizing the potential of digital technologies to further the collective understanding of societies and cultures around the world. As it exists today the program promotes the common good by supporting the creation, dissemination, use, and preservation of original sources, interpretive scholarship in the humanities, and other scholarly and artistic materials. Scholarly Communications grants have given rise to scores of nonprofit enterprises, including: Artstor, Digital Public Library of America, Hypothes.is, Ithaka, LOCKSS, and Portico; dozens of new types of professions, such as scholarly communications librarians, digital repository managers, digitization specialists, and data curators; and a large variety of standards and digital tools for knowledge-making. Broadly, the program aims to develop the sustainable tools, organizations, and networks of scholars and other professionals needed for these purposes, thereby making these resources available for potentially broader audiences and users.

The successful candidate will be an individual who is deeply immersed in innovative conversations around the challenges and opportunities that exist in the field of scholarly communications today and its future. Drawing upon her/his/their academic background and administrative experience in a related field, the next SPO will ensure that cultural and scholarly records are preserved for future work, teaching, and research; that records are accessible broadly; and that the economics surrounding this work are viable outside of forprofit industries. She/he/they will also embrace the possibility of reimagining and redefining this program area to best meet the challenges and opportunities of today through initiatives such as prioritizing the support of community-engaged research and knowledge or building previously underprioritized areas, in addition to the work traditionally supported by the Foundation….”
