Research Analyst

Cyber Policy Initiative

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is seeking a Research Analyst to work with scholars in our Washington DC-based Cyber Policy Initiative.  Founded in 1910, Carnegie is a top-ranked policy think tank with a unique global network research centers in Russia, China, Europe, the Middle East, India, and the United States.  The Cyber Policy Initiative is part of Carnegie's Technology and International Affairs program, which also focuses on artificial intelligence and biotechnology. 

The Research Analyst will primarily help build a project exploring how to leverage market incentives to improve cyber risk management.  For example, it researches and promotes ways in which commercial insurers, major asset-holding corporations, and credit-rating agencies, can set de facto standards that promote cybersecurity more quickly, flexibly, and internationally than governmental regulatory processes often do. 

The Research Analyst will work closely with scholars to develop and execute original research and writing projects such as policy briefs and longer research reports and build partnerships within the private sector.  Additional activities include: Engaging with policymakers in the U.S. Congress and administration; preparing and delivering briefings; attending and reporting back on relevant events in the policy community; contributing to other areas of the Initiative's work on cyber policy and strategy; and occasional administrative support, such as organizing public and private events.

The ideal candidate will have deep interest in technology policy, a willingness to dive into new research topics, and possess the ability to perform within a challenging program environment. Up to two years of relevant post-graduate experience is a plus, but not required.  Strong writing and research skills are essential.

Located in Dupont Circle in Washington, DC, we offer an outstanding benefits package. When applying, please include your resume/C.V. and cover letter. Please apply via the Carnegie Endowment website. 

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other protected group.
