|Project Title||Iran: Political Research Assistants|
|Project Summary||Research and report on trends in contemporary Iranian society, politics, and foreign policy, using Farsi-language, Iran-based websites, social media, and other available open sources.|
|Country||United Arab Emirates|
|Agency||Department of State|
|Number of Interns||3|
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 three political Virtual Interns to conduct research on current developments, to include Iranian views and reactions to developments in U.S. Iran policy. This research will focus on Iran's domestic politics as well as its foreign policy.
Interns would be assigned to both long-term research projects (spend 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.
