The Atlantic Institute in partnership with The Rhodes Trust 

The Atlantic Institute was established in 2016 with the support of The Atlantic Philanthropies, and in collaboration with The Rhodes Trust. 

Senior Fellow Engagement Lead

The Atlantic Institute is seeking a Senior Fellow Engagement Lead, who will work with the Program Director to develop a strongly connected lifelong community of senior fellows who together amplify their impact in the world and ultimately “bend the arc” of global inequity. 

In particular, the Senior Fellow Engagement Lead will:

  • Support the development and delivery of a strongly connected AF Program community
  • Support the design and implementation of programs in support of the work of Senior Fellows (underpinned by critical and inclusive pedagogy) and the development of a strongly connected lifelong community of action among Senior Fellows
  • Support offerings for Senior Fellows such as Learning and Connection Grants, Externships, and Leadership in Residence opportunities
  • Support the Program Director (in consultation with Director of On-line Engagement) to develop a convening/engagement framework for 2021 – 2026 that incorporates new approaches to community building (including Augmented Realities)
  • Support the development of a network of contacts with the University of Oxford and beyond who can serve as speakers, facilitators and resources for Institute convenings.

Ideal candidates for this newly created role will be educated to Masters level and have 5 years’ experience in critical and transformative curriculum design and adult teaching and learning (including co-design and narrative change). We’re looking for someone with a critical understanding of the root causes of inequity, and a commitment to social justice, from an authentic leader and skilled communicator with the ability to engage successfully across diverse cultures.

Please see the job description for more information and details on how to apply.
