The Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication (CARGC) at the Annenberg School for Communication produces and promotes scholarly research on global communication and public life. As an institute for advanced study dedicated to global media studies, we revisit enduring questions and engage pressing matters in geopolitics and communication.

Our vision of 'inclusive globalization' recognizes plurality and inequality in global media, politics, and culture. Our translocal approach fuses multidisciplinary regional knowledge with theory and methodology in the humanities and social sciences. This synthesis of deep expertise and interdisciplinary inquiry stimulates critical conversations about entrenched and emerging communicative structures, practices, flows, and struggles.

We explore new ways of understanding and explaining the world, including public scholarship, algorithmic culture, the arts, multi-modal scholarship, and digital archives. With a core commitment to the development of early career scholars worldwide, CARGC hosts postdoctoral, doctoral, undergraduate, and faculty fellows who collaborate in research groups, author CARGC Press publications, and organize talks, lectures, symposia, conferences, and summer institutes.


Reporting to the CARGC Director, the Research Manager will manage the research and publication program of the Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication at the Annenberg School for Communication. Primary duties will include management of CARGC research groups (ongoing research groups focus on theory and history in global media studies, geopolitics and the popular, digital sovereignty, and radical media and culture); mentoring CARGC postdoctoral, doctoral, and undergraduate fellows; assisting in hosting visiting scholars and speakers; developing and editing CARGC Press publications; developing website content; conceptualization, preparation, review, and submission of sponsored program proposals.

The Research Manager will also represent the CARGC Director within Penn and beyond. The manager may have the opportunity to teach undergraduate seminars at Annenberg School for Communication.

This is a 2-year term position, renewable contingent upon available funding. Annenberg School for Communication
