The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a unique global network of policy research centers in Russia, China, Europe, the Middle East, India, and the United States, is seeking a Research Fellow for its Washington, DC-based Middle East Program. This Fellow will coordinate a project on Tunisia and report directly to the Middle East Program Director.

This position is for a one-year project with possible renewal for a second year.

Responsibilities include being the primary researcher and drafter of twice-annual reports on the status of Tunisia’s transition in the political, economic, and security realms, based on fieldwork done in the country; organizing and co-chairing a civil society roundtable in Tunisia twice annually; building a network of contributors (primarily in Tunisia but also in Libya, Europe, and the United State) with expertise on specific topics related to the main subjects to be monitored; commissioning and editing, in conjunction with Carnegie editors, researched analysis from contributors in the network in the form of articles and other publications; meeting frequently with government officials in Tunisia, Europe, and the United States to discuss developments in the country; and participating actively in DC-based efforts to recommend more effective international engagement with Tunisia.

While a PhD is desired, a candidate with a Master’s degree and approximately five years of related experience would also be considered. The position requires the ability to carry out research interviews in either Arabic or French as well as native or near-native English language skills. The ideal candidate will have a demonstrated track record of publication on Tunisia, substantive editing experience, and the ability to work collaboratively with other scholars.

Located in Dupont Circle, we offer an outstanding work environment and generous benefits. Please apply via the Carnegie Endowment website:
