Policy Writer – The Policy Writer plays a critical role in translating original GIWPS research and analysis for a policy audience. They conduct substantive editing and copyediting of research reports, policy briefs, and other GIWPS content before publication; generate ideas for new types of content; write original content in various voices; and conduct policy-relevant research. 


Hillary Rodham Clinton Research Fellow – The HRC Research Fellowship is a one-year program that provides unique opportunities to a recent Georgetown University Ph.D. or master’s level graduate to conduct rigorous, policy-oriented research to address key knowledge gaps in the field of Women, Peace and Security (WPS). Fellows should have working knowledge of the WPS Agenda and related US and international policy frameworks. May 2024 graduates are welcome to apply. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until May 1.
