The International Center for Journalists seeks a Knight International Journalism Fellow to guide the development of the International Media Institute of India (IMII). Located in the Delhi suburb of Noida, IMII opened its doors this summer to 30 students from India and the region.
The ideal candidate will have the administrative experience needed to build IMII into a sustainable institution that puts high-quality graduates with digital skills into top jobs in Indian media.
During the 20-month fellowship, the fellow will oversee the school’s administration, recruit and train faculty and students, teach courses, help students secure internships and jobs and develop new partnerships and funding to support IMII.
Candidates also should have:
- A strong understanding of best journalistic practices
- Knowledge of digital media
- Academic/training experience
- Experience in India (preferred)
IMII is run by ICFJ and its Indian partner, the Society for Policy Studies (SPS), a think tank of Indian journalists and policy affairs analysts. It is funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. The Graduate School of Journalism of the City University of New York (CUNY) is providing curriculum support.
