The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a global network of policy research centers in Russia, China, Europe, the Middle East, India, and the United States, is seeking a research assistant to support its Washington, DC-based Nuclear Policy Program. 

Responsibilities will be split between providing research assistance to senior staff and leading the Nuclear Policy Program's global outreach efforts. Research responsibilities include providing substantive and editorial support to a number of projects on different aspects of nuclear policy. Communication responsibilities include maintaining the program website; managing the program's social media accounts; producing and managing the program's bi-weekly email newsletter; maintaining the program's contact database; and liaising with the Carnegie communications team. This position will also provide logistical support, as needed, for Nuclear Policy Program events, including the 2019 Carnegie International Nuclear Policy Conference.


The successful candidate will have a master's degree relevant to nuclear policy or a bachelor's degree with at least one to two years of relevant work experience as well as demonstrable interest in and knowledge of the subject. The ideal candidate would have excellent research and analysis skills and strong attention to detail, be well organized, and demonstrate the ability to work as part of a team. Experience in digital communications would be an advantage, but is not required.
