EU institutions researcher
The CER is looking for a researcher to work on the EU's institutions, and on the 'future of Europe' debate.
Candidates should be familiar with EU institutions and policies, and should be interested in how both could be reformed. Candidates need not be expert on Britain's relationship with the EU but should be willing to work on that subject. Some knowledge of the EU's role in justice and home affairs would be an advantage, but not essential. It would be useful if candidates had good contacts in continental European countries.
Fluent spoken and written English is essential, as is the ability to write short and longer pieces to deadlines. Candidates should be ready to deal with the media and undertake public speaking, help organise events and edit colleagues' work. They should be comfortable with working as part of a small team. Candidates should have at least four years' relevant work experience. The job is London-based, but if the candidate was keen to be based in Brussels – after an initial period in London – that option could be considered.
We expect to make the appointment in the spring. Anyone wishing to apply for this job should email Catherine Hoye at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following:
1. Covering letter;
3. A writing sample of 1,000 words or less.
Deadline for applications: 8 March 2014.
