Guided by the enduring principles of the American Founding, the B. Kenneth Simon Center for Principles and Politics defends the institutions and civic virtues that sustain republican self-government. It does so by publishing essays and reports, running educational programs, and sponsoring lectures aimed at defending constitutionalism, promoting conservatism and pushing back against the excesses of progressive-liberalism.
The one-year Research Assistant position is for recent graduates interested in American political thought and its development. The Research Assistant will conduct in-depth research projects under the guidance of David Azerrad, the Director of the Simon Center. The Research Assistant will also have some opportunity to publish op-eds, attend lectures and briefings on Capitol Hill, while helping with the Center’s various educational programs and administrative functions.
