The Cato Institute seeks a research assistant for a full-time position located in DC as a research assistant specializing in foreign and defense policy. This position will assist scholars with tasks in a fast-paced environment. The ideal candidate will have exceptionally strong research skills, and knowledge of foreign policy and defense, as well as a commitment to limited government and individual liberty. Successful candidates will be entrepreneurial, hard-working, self-starters, with a willingness to adapt to the changing needs of a growing policy center.
The Cato Institute is a public policy research organization—a think tank—dedicated to the principles of individual liberty, limited government, free markets and peace. Its scholars and analysts conduct independent, nonpartisan research on a wide range of policy issues.
Founded in 1977, Cato owes its name to Cato’s Letters, a series of essays published in 18th- century England that presented a vision of society free from excessive government power. Those essays inspired the architects of the American Revolution. And the simple, timeless principles of that revolution — individual liberty, limited government, and free markets – turn out to be even more powerful in today’s world of global markets and unprecedented access to information than Jefferson or Madison could have imagined. Social and economic freedom is not just the best policy for a free people, it is the indispensable framework for the future. Cato Institute is an EOE.
