The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), located in Princeton, NJ, is the largest philanthropy in America dedicated solely to health. Since 1972 we have been providing funding, assistance, and research for projects and programs to help people, their families, and their communities be as healthy as possible. RWJF is committed to working alongside others to build a Culture of Health where everyone has a fair and just opportunity for health and well-being.


Diversity, inclusion, and collaboration are fundamental principles at RWJF. Our staff’s wide range of experiences, passions, and perspectives enriches our work and strengthens our ability to address our nation’s most pressing health issues. With a career at RWJF you will make a difference.


The Foundation is seeking a senior program officer (SPO) to focus on its efforts to ensure that all children and their families have an equitable opportunity to achieve their optimal health and well-being.


RWJF’s strategic approach through this body of work aims to improve the conditions that affect child and family well-being, particularly during the earliest years of a child’s life, through policy, systems, and environmental changes. Core to the Foundation’s mission, these initiatives and programs focus on how individuals and organizations can shift mindsets and tackle systemic barriers to health and well-being for children and families.


This SPO will play a critical role in advancing the Foundation’s priorities by designing, managing, and monitoring strategies and initiatives that promote policies to ensure that families have the economic opportunity to raise healthy families; and promote a shift in mindsets and values in support of health for children and families. Drawing upon experience working in highly collaborative environments, leading strategy development and monitoring, and designing systems-change initiatives for social change, the new SPO will lead the design and implementation of new and on-going initiatives and programs; evaluate progress at the strategy and initiative levels; learn from our investments and activities in close collaboration with RWJF’s Research, Evaluation, and Learning Unit; and create impact through dissemination of knowledge.

RWJF offers competitive salaries and excellent benefits.
