Organizational Summary:

The Project on Middle East Democracy (POMED) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to examining how genuine democracies can develop in the Middle East and how the United States can best support that process. Through programs in research, advocacy, dialogue and civil society partnerships, we work to strengthen support for democratic development in the Middle East and North Africa.

Position Description:

POMED is currently hiring a Program Assistant for Civil Society Partnerships to be based in Tunis, Tunisia to help manage a portfolio of capacity building projects with nascent policy organizations in transitioning Arab countries.
