Minerva Project collaborates with educational institutions, corporations, nonprofits, and governments to design and deliver transformational educational programs at the high school, higher education, and professional levels. Our mission is to nurture critical wisdom for the sake of the world, because nothing is more pressing than effectively equipping current and future generations to make wise decisions that positively affect society.
Minerva Project is on a strong growth trajectory fueled by the increased demand for improved learning solutions. We are looking for an Academic Project Manager (APM) who will be responsible for leading Minerva higher education partnership programs, managing and overseeing partner relationships, and serving as a guide to help partners meet their goals and make programs a success.
High level responsibilities include:
In addition to managing 2-3 partnership programs, APMs typically also occupy the role of Course Manager for one or more courses each semester for programs they manage or other partnership programs. In this capacity, APMs train and support partner instructors to design and/or deliver courses using active learning pedagogy on Minerva’s ForumTM learning platform. APMs may also carry out work on strategic projects and activities such as program design consulting, business development, writing grant and RFP proposals, and thought leadership through research, writing, and conference participation. Finally, occasional teaching opportunities may be available depending on needs.
We are hiring with the future in mind, and candidates hired into this role can anticipate professional growth opportunities. Experienced candidates with the right backgrounds may be considered for positions at more senior levels.
This is a remote position, and we are interested in candidates both within and outside of North America, particularly those based in Europe and Asia.
Minerva Project endeavors for our team to represent the diversity of the partners and students we serve globally. We have worked with partners on six continents and our students come from every walk of life. We strive to create educational and professional environments where everyone feels a sense of belonging and can thrive. Our hiring process is designed intentionally to build a workforce that reflects our commitment that talent is equally distributed but opportunity is not. Members of all underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
