The James C. Gaither Junior Fellows Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace offers a substantive work experience for students committed to a career in international affairs. Following applications and interviews, approximately 12-14 students are hired to work as research assistants at Carnegie in Washington, DC for a period of one year. Advanced proficiency in one or more foreign languages is essential; facility with research methodologies (including, for example, statistical inquiry) is important as well.
Gaither Junior Fellows are hired for a period of one year, with fellowships beginning August 1.
The monthly salary is $3,291.67 (equivalent to $39,500 annually) subject to federal, state and local taxes. Benefits are provided, including medical, dental and life insurance as well as vacation leave. Gaither Junior Fellows are responsible for their own housing arrangements.
Applicants should consult the Carnegie website for current areas of focus. Recent research programs include: Asia (including China and Japan programs), Democracy and Rule of Law, Europe, Geoeconomics and Strategy, Middle East, Nuclear Policy, Russia and Eurasia, South Asia, or Technology and International Affairs.
UT Austin may nominate up to two (2) students for consideration. The internal UT selection due date is December 6, 2019. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are considering an application.
