Our New York office is currently seeking a one-year Fellow
Beginning in September of this year, the New York Fellow will work with QUNO senior staff to develop QUNO’s knowledge and programmatic capacities in the area of the prevention of violent conflict at the United Nations. In particular, the Fellow will work on one or more focused projects that fit within QUNO’s program plan, and as agreed by QUNO senior staff. The fellow will undertake both research and programmatic work. This will include, but will not be limited to, developing one or more reports by the end of the fellowship as well as attending relevant UN meetings, meeting with diplomats, members of the UN Secretariat and NGO representatives. The Fellow will liaise with other Quaker partner agencies and report on and interpret QUNO program to those outside of QUNO as needed. S/he may from time to time also be required to assist in supporting the day to day operations of the office, including preparing for and participating in QUNO Committee meetings. The deadline to apply is June 5. For more information and to submit your application click here.
