Applicants who are invited to submit a proposal should outline their proposed areas of work and how that contribution will meet Accountability Counsel’s organizational needs and serve in furthering our mission.

Post-Graduate Research Fellows will report to our Research Director. Fellows are expected to oversee and manage a discrete research or data project relating the state of international accountability, working with all parts of our organization to synthesize data and produce salient conclusions. Projects can involve a variety of methodologies, and we welcome applicants from a diverse array of backgrounds including social sciences, computer science, data analytics, or other related fields. Familiarity with data modeling and programming languages such as Python or R are helpful but not required.
