The Center for Global Development (CGD), an independent, non-partisan research organization in Washington, D.C., is accepting applications for their research assistant and program coordinator “candidate pools.” They reach out to candidates in the pool in the event a position becomes available.
Research assistants support and participate in collaborative research projects and contribute to the Center’s work through a mixture of research, data analysis, writing, and organizational activities. Program coordinators support program teams through grants and financial management, operational activities, project management, and some substantive research support.
Candidates are typically recent undergraduates who have an interest in gaining research, policy, programmatic operations, and project management experience before going on to graduate studies. CGD provides research assistants and program coordinators an opportunity for a promotion to associate after two years in the role.
