The American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research (AEI) is seeking Staff and Research Assistants for employment beginning summer 2013. 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.

AEI is dedicated to preserving and strengthening the foundations of freedom—government, private enterprise, vital cultural and political institutions, and a strong foreign policy and national defense—through scholarly research, open debate, and publications. Located in Washington, D.C., AEI is one of America's largest and most respected non-partisan "think tanks."

AEI research covers economics and trade; social welfare; government tax, spending, regulatory, and legal policies; U.S. politics; international affairs; and U.S. defense and foreign policies. The Institute publishes dozens of books and hundreds of articles and reports each year, and an influential online policy magazine, The American . AEI publications are distributed widely to government officials and legislators, business executives, journalists, and academics; its conferences, seminars, and lectures are regularly covered by national television.

In the early spring, specific summer 2013 vacancies will be posted as individual listings, so please also submit application materials for any of these positions in order to be formally considered. To be considered for a general staff/research assistant position starting summer 2013, please apply online at: www.aei.org/jobs. Please submit a resume, cover letter, academic transcript (unofficial are acceptable), and a short writing sample (5 pages or less).
