The Center for Strategic Philanthropy and Civil Society and the DeWitt Wallace Center for Media and Democracy in the Sanford School of Public Policy invite applications for a post-doctoral research fellow position affiliated with both of the co-sponsoring Centers. This position is designed to further research and inform practice on questions at the intersection of the media, philanthropy, and democracy in the United States.
There has long been a dearth of research and writing on the media’s coverage of foundations, nonprofits, and individual donors – and in particular their impact on society, policy, and democracy. Likewise, there is virtually no thoughtful research and writing on how mainstream and new media discourse might best explore the role, successes, and shortcomings of the philanthropic enterprise. The post-doctoral Duke Fellow would grapple with these questions by conducting original research and translating it for media, practitioners and other scholars.
Flexible term position: 1 to 3 years, beginning September 2015
The Sanford School includes a full-time faculty of 60, and offers an undergraduate major, two masters programs, and a Ph.D. program. More information on the Sanford School can be found at .

Applications received by August 1, 2015, will be assured full consideration.
