House Foreign Affairs Committee Democrats are seeking a Research Assistant for the Indo-Pacific region (junior/entry level position) beginning on/about January 2019. Working under the direction of the Committee's senior Asia staff, the person hired for this position will be involved in substantive policy matters across the Indo-Pacific portfolio including legislative research, meeting preparation, hearing preparation, stakeholder outreach, and other tasks supporting the Committee's oversight responsibilities of the State Department and USAID.
The ideal candidate will be a highly organized and motivated self-starter with a graduate degree and prior experience with — or exposure to — both East and South Asia; familiarity with the Hill; and excellent research and writing skills.
