Position description

The Government Accountability Project (GAP) is offering a three-month fellowship beginning May 15, 2018 to research issues related to corruption and/or illegality and whistleblowing at the international level. 

The Fellow will receive financial support from GAP to conduct research on international corruption and whistleblowing. Topics of particular interest are corporate tax avoidance, criminal prosecution of whistleblowers, persecution of journalists and their sources who reveal international corruption, government complicity in international wrongdoing, and the role of whistleblowers at intergovernmental organizations in exposing transnational crime, human rights abuse or environmental crimes.

The work proposed for the GAP Fellowship may focus on one of these topics, or on another issue related to wrongdoing, whistleblowing and reprisal in an international context.


We are searching for a faculty member with a current teaching/research position at a Washington, DC area college or university in the social sciences, who will conduct quantitative and/or qualitative research on the topics (or related topics) identified above. Doctoral candidates will be considered eligible.

Prior research or work experience related to transparency and accountability is preferred.
