Research Fellowship Program:
The Zambakari Advisory Fellowship Program gives individuals an opportunity to develop firsthand experience in the fields of international affairs, security, and development with a focus on Africa and the Middle East. This is a unique opportunity to strengthen research skills and practical experience working with a young and dynamic consulting firm.
The Fellowship Program offers pre-and doctoral students and young professionals in the social sciences an opportunity to contribute to the Advisory’s body of research under the supervision of senior experts and consultants. Fellows will become a part of a diverse and highly experienced team, and work under the close supervision of the Advisory’s CEO and consultants. Publications that are completed as a part of the fellowship will become available to the Advisory’s extensive audience, and shared at relevant conferences when applicable.
The candidate must hold a master degree to be considered for the program and possess excellent knowledge and research skills to help contribute to our research and advisory work. Fellows are expected to produce a research product (e.g., research reports, peer reviewed articles, book manuscript) during their tenure (at least one report per semester and one peer reviewed manuscript every six months). We welcome applicants working within a broad range of topics related to peace, human rights, transitional processes, international security, development, and trade.
Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, resume and two writing samples, showing how their skills, experience or aptitude are aligned to the desired qualifications outlined for this fellowship. We are accepting candidates on a rolling basis. Materials should be submitted to Dr. Christopher Zambakari at: firstname.lastname@example.org. This is an unpaid fellowship which can be done remotely.
