Global Integrity is looking for a few overworked and underpaid spring research associates to join our team. In grad school in the DC area and interested in working with us part-time? Then keep reading for more details and contact information.
Who is the ideal “research associate?” Here are a few qualifying characteristics:
In graduate school in the Washington, DC area, likely studying international public policy, development, politics, journalism, and/or international law.
Relevant work experience (even if modest) in one of the above fields.
Self-starter and eager to learn.
Proficient with basic office technology and software.
Willingness to get outside of the office to attend various events and brown bags around town.
Ability to commute to the McPherson Square area.
Non-English language skills are always a plus but not required.
Not a fan of the Dallas Cowboys football team.
Anticipated duties include:
Research and writing of Corruption Timelines for the countries being covered in the Global Integrity Report: 2010.
Assistance with managing field teams contributing to the Global Integrity Report: 2010.
All sorts of project management support and research associated with a range of Local Integrity Initiative projects
in the Philippines, Indonesia, the United States, Mexico, Papua New Guinea, and Kenya.
What will not be expected of research associates: tedious grunt work (e.g. photocopying, newspaper clipping, fetching other staff coffee…although the latter has admittedly crossed our mind more than once).
Our research associate slots for this spring are unfortunately unpaid, but we offer a friendly atmosphere, smart co-workers, free coffee, and a supremely flexible schedule that fits best around school work. We also write really good recommendation letters for our favorite research associates when the time comes.
Still interested? Contact Managing Director Nathaniel Heller via email to continue the discussion: nathaniel.heller [at] globalintegrity dot org.
