The Henry L. Stimson Center, a nonpartisan policy research center, seeks a highly-motivated individual to join the team as a full-time Research Assistant for the South Asia Program starting February 2019. The successful candidate will have some prior educational and/or professional experience in communications, research, or the South Asian security and/or nuclear fields.

Stimson’s South Asia Program focuses on deterrence challenges, crisis dynamics, and great-power competition on the Subcontinent. The program seeks to support strategic stability in South Asia through novel research, analysis of the accelerating arms competition in Southern Asia, online platforms (South Asian Voices and Nuclear Learning), and direct engagement with analysts and practitioners in the region.

The Research Assistant will contribute primarily to the day-to-day development and management of Nuclear Learning.  Along with providing administrative support for the first online course, “Nuclear South Asia,” co-producing a second online course on deterrence among China, India, Pakistan, and the United States will comprise a substantial portion of the incoming staff member’s workload. The Research Assistant will also help advance programmatic objectives by providing administrative, editorial, and research support to the team.
