The Migration Policy Institute (MPI) is an independent, nonpartisan think tank that seeks to improve immigration and integration policies through authoritative research and analysis, opportunities for learning and dialogue, and the development of new ideas to address complex policy questions. MPI’s Human Services Initiative (HSI) is an interdisciplinary policy laboratory developing innovative, evidence-based, and politically feasible solutions to address a broad range of immigration issues affecting children and families, humanitarian populations, and intersections between immigration and health and human services programs. The Research Assistant must quickly achieve proficiency across the range of projects that MPI’s HSI is engaged in and provide critical project management, research and administrative support, and logistical planning to advance MPI’s mission. The incumbent is expected to have strong research and writing skills in English, with Spanish also preferred. The successful candidate will begin as soon as possible; this position is ideally based in Washington, DC, but qualified candidates requesting remote work options will be considered.
