The American Enterprise Institute (AEI) is seeking Staff and Research Assistants for employment beginning summer 2017. Applying to the general posting allows upcoming 2017 graduates and recent graduates to be considered for both research assistant positions in the three program areas as well as staff positions. Employment opportunities consist of research assistant positions in the three program areas: economic policy studies, foreign and defense policy studies, and social and political studies. In addition, staff vacancies also occur in our development, conferences, human resources, public affairs, and communication departments. Staff positions provide opportunities to work with some of America’s most renowned scholars, economists, legal scholars, political scientists, and foreign policy specialists doing research on current public policy issues.
Positions require excellent organizational, research, writing, and computer skills, as well as the ability to multi-task. Responsibilities include researching, writing, editing, event planning, and administrative work. An interest in public policy is essential. Most academic department positions support more than one scholar, but are usually grouped by a general topic—healthcare, foreign policy, etc. Competitive candidates will generally possess a 3.6 GPA from a top ranking college or university.
In the early spring, specific summer 2017 vacancies will be posted as individual listings, so please also submit application materials for any of these positions in order to be formally considered.
