Research Assistants

Research Assistants assist with research projects of benefit to the security cooperation management enterprise. They have an educational background in an international-related field of study and can either be a senior in undergraduate school or participating in (or have graduated from) a Master's program. In return, they gain considerable understanding and expertise as they participate as facilitators, students, and eventually presenters in several of our courses. Their primary focus is within the regional studies programs, thus gaining a better understanding of the U.S. Government's (primarily DoD) interaction with international partners. They are recruited, hired, and paid by Zenetex, LLC.
