Project Description

The Iran Regional Presence Office (IRPO) in Dubai conducts in-depth analysis of political, economic, and social developments within Iran. We will be hiring up to four Virtual Interns to conduct research on current developments, to include Iranian views and reactions to developments in U.S. Iran policy.

Interns would be assigned both long-term research projects (spemd several weeks researching a single topic and provide a comprehensive report), or short-term spot reports on specific items. We are only interested in Iran-based sources, and Farsi language proficiency is a must.
