Join Our Team


The Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security (GIWPS) team is continuing to grow! 

We are pleased to announce the addition of two senior positions on our research team: a Senior Research Fellow to lead our climate research portfolio and a Research Fellow to develop and oversee our Conflict Tracker Project.

The Senior Research Fellow will lead our climate research portfolio. They will be responsible for shaping the Institute’s climate research agenda and producing cutting-edge research and analysis that responds to the challenges and opportunities found at the intersection of gender, climate, and security issues. The Senior Research Fellow will envision, craft, and execute climate-related research projects and disseminate findings through academic, policy, and practitioner communities. They will also have the opportunity to develop and teach a graduate course on gender, climate, and security as part of the Institute’s graduate certificate program. Candidates must have a Ph.D.


The Research Fellow will develop and oversee our Conflict Tracker Project to monitor and analyze current conflicts and crises in a select group of countries. The Research Fellow will apply an intersectional gender analysis to these contexts to develop and update country profiles and to produce timely policy analysis. In collaboration with the Policy and Programs Team, the Research Fellow will help to identify and inform key opportunities for policy advocacy and work to develop evidence-based policy recommendations. The Research Fellow will also provide regular briefings to key staff on conflict developments and represent the Institute at external stakeholder engagements. Candidates must have a Master’s Degree.
