Job Description

Rethinking Iran, a SAIS initiative founded in 2019, focuses on pushing the boundaries of knowledge in Washington, D.C. Rethinking Iran explores the cultural, societal, and political changes and continuities taking place in present-day Iran. We serve as the nexus of engagement between academic research with policy-makers to produce cutting-edge ideas and solutions relating to Iran and US-Iran relations. Led by SAIS Professors Vali Nasr and Narges Bajoghli; for more information: www.rethinkingiran.com 

One of our main areas of engagement with the broader community is creating programs that serve the SAIS community, the wider DC-area policymaking community, academics, and policymakers across the world. These events will be a combination of virtual and in-person events, with the possibility of creating/coordinating Congressional hearings as well. We seek an events coordinator who will:

- Invite speakers
- Communicate and plan logistics with invited speakers
- Coordinate event logistics with our Digital Media Coordinator for digital outreach
- Coordinate events logistics with our Policy Fellow, and with related people in the DC-area policy community, including for Congressional hearings
- In the case of Zoom events, organize all zoom details, send calendar invites, and link our zoom event with our YouTube event for streaming
- In the case of in-person events at SAIS, coordinate all logistics with appropriate SAIS offices
- Coordinate any honoraria between speakers and SAIS financial offices
- Be detail oriented and self-driven
