Job Title: Research Fellows
Working For: Henry Jackson Society
Salary: £25k-£45k, dependent on experience and career level. A junior researcher would be expected to earn £25k-£35k and a mid-level one £35-45k.
The Henry Jackson Society (HJS) is the UK’s boldest think tank and policy-shaping force, constantly ahead of the curve on the big issues of international and domestic importance, and we are expanding. We are looking for new Research Fellows to join us on the next stage of our organisational journey, which has already taken us to the status of a household name in the international political and media constellation.
When HJS was founded back in 2005, the global environment was very different to what it has become today. Over that time, the threats to the free world internationally and to free societies domestically have multiplied, but there has been one constant: HJS’s willingness and ability to fight for the principles and alliances which keep societies free – working across borders and party lines to combat extremism, advance democracy and fundamental human rights, and make a stand in an increasingly uncertain world.
Reflecting this, we are refocusing our work into two main streams: “Home” and “Abroad”. The “Home” division will focus on threats to free societies within the West, while the “Abroad” division will examine how the enemies of the free world are operating internationally.
What we are looking for
In order to meet our ambitious agenda and to augment our existing capabilities, we need multiple Research Fellows in the “Home” and “Abroad” streams. These positions will include a wide variety of responsibilities and an opportunity to contribute to one of the most incisive research teams in the thinktank world, and to build your own media and political profile.
