A non-partisan, non-profit organization, Intelligence Squared U.S. addresses a fundamental problem in America: the extreme polarization of our nation and our politics. Our mission is to restore critical thinking, facts, reason, and civility to public discourse. Through a series of Oxford-style debates, IQ2US provides a critical forum for balanced and intelligent discussion of issues ranging from domestic and foreign policy to cultural trends and technological innovations. IQ2US debates are recorded in front of a live audience and distributed through public radio, podcast, and a number of digital streaming platforms.
ABOUT THE POSITION:

This person will conduct in-depth research for upcoming debates, including preparing research briefings and writing copy that is clear, factual, and balanced. The ideal candidate is deeply committed to promoting a true competition of ideas and intellectual diversity in American public discourse. This candidate has a strong work ethic, thrives under tight deadlines, regularly consumes news from a wide variety of sources, and possesses the ability to think deeply and critically about a range of topics, including foreign policy, economics, politics, sports, culture, and technology.
