Brennan Center For Justice New York , NY 10007

Posted 2 months ago

The Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law is a nonpartisan law and policy institute that seeks to improve the systems of democracy and justice in the United States. We work to hold our political institutions and laws accountable to the twin American ideals of democracy and equal justice for all. The Brennan Center's work ranges from voting rights to campaign finance reform, from ending mass incarceration to preserving Constitutional protections in the fight against terrorism. Part think tank, part advocacy group, part cutting edge communications hub, we start with rigorous research. We craft innovative policies. And we fight for them in Congress and the states, in the courts, and in the court of public opinion.

The Democracy Program seeks to perfect the ideal of representative self-government by advocating for public policies and institutions that reflect a diverse, engaged, and energetic democracy. The Program collaborates with grassroots groups, advocacy organizations, and reform-minded government officials to promote policies that eliminate barriers to full and equal political participation.

Project areas include work on voting rights (including the rights of students and people with felony convictions); reform of election administration (including voter registration modernization, ballot design, and defensive work against photo ID and other practices likely to suppress the vote or have a disproportionate impact on communities of color); campaign finance reform at the federal, state, and local level; protecting the independence, impartiality, and integrity of the courts; eliminating partisan gerrymandering and other manipulations of electoral maps; and combating efforts to undermine the fairness and integrity of the census.

  • Working with attorneys, fellows, communications and development professionals, editors, allies, clients, other research and program associates, and organizational leadership.

  • A significant portion of the Research & Program Associate's time may be spent on administrative tasks, depending on program priorities.

Qualifications--The ideal candidate will have:

  • A bachelor's degree (this is an entry level position; lawyers and individuals with advanced degrees will not be considered).

  • Exceptional writing skills and excellent analytic, strategic, research and organizational skills.

  • A strong entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for the work of the Center.
