We are looking for a full-time research assistant at Cato's trade policy center. Here are the details:
The Cato Institute seeks a research assistant to support the efforts of its trade scholars, who focus on educating the public about the benefits of free trade and the costs of protectionism. The ideal candidate will have an excellent work ethic, strong writing and communications skills, a real interest in the details of U.S. trade policy, some understanding of the institutions, organizations, agencies and other entities that affect trade policy, and some appreciation for the legislative, administrative, political, and historical details that animate the U.S. trade policy debate.
Advanced degree in economics or public policy preferred. Compensation will be commensurate with experience, accomplishment, and ability.
Applicants should send their resume, cover letter, and writing samples to:
Director, Herbert A. Stiefel Center for Trade Policy Studies
1000 Massachusetts Ave. NW
Washington, DC 20001
Fax (202) 842-3490
I'm guessing that many of this blog's readers are beyond research assistant status, but if you know someone who might be interested, please pass this along.
