R Street Institute
The R Street Institute—a free-market think tank headquartered in Washington, D.C., with regional offices across the country—seeks an energetic policy fellow to conduct policy research on children and technology. If you want to join a young and energetic organization and do something extraordinary, this may be just the opportunity you need.

Your typical day at R Street may include writing research papers, meeting with congressional or executive agency staff, and working with media to promote issues and positions of relevance. The position will report to the Director of Technology and Innovation Policy.
Skills and Qualifications
This is a full-time job based in Washington, D.C., but we will consider candidates outside the D.C. area on an exceptional basis. R Street is growing rapidly but remains a close-knit team.
R Street strives to provide a compensation package superior to those at other think tanks and nonprofits. In addition to a competitive salary, we provide a health insurance option entirely paid by the employer (even for families), wellness benefits, employer-subsidized mobile phone benefit, 401(k) contributions with up to a four percent match and an exceptionally generous vacation policy.
R Street does not discriminate on the basis of age, sex, race, creed, color, national origin, sexual orientation, era of military service, gender identity, relationship structure or anything else that's illegal, immoral or stupid to use as a basis for hiring.
We currently plan to accept applications for this job until filled. We will contact ideal individuals for telephone interviews and conduct them on a rolling basis. We will hold in-person interviews in our D.C. office.
To apply, you must upload a cover letter, writing sample, and resume in Microsoft Word or PDF format.
