Director, John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum, Boston, MA

The John F. Kennedy (JFK) Presidential Library and Museum seeks a collaborative, visible, and visionary leader to serve as its next Director. One of the 14 Presidential Libraries administered by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), the JFK Library and Museum serves as the nation's memorial to President Kennedy - sharing the story of his life, times, and legacy. It is dedicated to the memory of our nation's 35th president and to all those who through the art of politics seek a new and better world. With significant opportunities to expand on digitization and global civic engagement, the new Director will arrive at a time where JFK's message - and the work of the enterprise - has never been more relevant.

The next Director will manage the programs and activities of the Library and Museum, including archival, exhibits, public and educational programs. S/he will lead a talented and dedicated staff of 30 and work closely with NARA peers to ensure Library operations are in alignment with the Agency's strategic goals. The Director will act as a liaison and partner to the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation to ensure the success of its programs and allow this public/private partnership to continue to flourish.

The successful candidate will support the Museum's collecting and research interests; increase investments in technology to make resources and documents more accessible online; and build creative partnerships with outside organizations.

Please direct all inquiries, nominations, referrals, and applications to: Andrew Lee, Vice President, Allison Pickett, Associate, Isaacson, Miller
