CFR’s David Rockefeller Studies Program is one of the country’s largest foreign policy think tanks with a widely respected and influential research staff. The Studies Program aims to advance the discussion of American foreign policy and international affairs through its writing, publications, public outreach, and discussions.
As part of the Studies Program, the research associate will spend half of their time supporting a fellow concentrated on Latin America studies and areas of security, strategic competition, migration, and democratization; and half of their time supporting a senior fellow focused on U.S. foreign policy, transatlantic relations, and European affairs.
