Join one of the most influential, most quoted and most trusted think tanks! The Brookings Institution is a nonprofit public policy organization based in Washington, DC. Our mission is to conduct in-depth research that leads to new ideas for solving problems facing society at the local, national and global level.   We bring together leading experts in government and academia from all over the world, rooted in open-minded inquiry and representing diverse points of view, who provide the highest quality research, policy recommendations, and analysis.

Allen, the independent and non-partisan research of the Brookings AIET Initiative draws on scholars from all five research programs at Brookings, as well as relevant experts from academia, government, civil society, and the technology industry. Importantly, the Brookings AIET Initiative seeks to bridge the growing divides between industry, civil society, and policymakers.    Please note: This position is based in Brookings' Washington, DC office. In response to COVID-19, Brookings staff are temporarily teleworking. Once the Brookings' office reopens, the person hired for this position will work in the Brookings Washington, DC office.
