Description:

A UANI research analyst is responsible for developing and drafting comprehensive research reports as well as meticulous letters of inquiries to companies that advocate against their business in Iran. S/he will also be responsible for creating and implementing new campaigns to highlight the Iranian regime's nefarious activities. These materials will be presented to a broad audience, including the media, corporations, governments, and the general public.

The research analyst will work with a small team on a daily basis in addition to produce high-quality materials to be reviewed by members of UANI's executive leadership and/or published online for consumption by the general public, the media, and/or policymakers. A high caliber of professionalism, thoroughness, and thoughtfulness is expected.

The research analyst's work will contribute to UANI's already extensive list of campaigns that compel responsible businesses to stay out of Iran. These materials encourage governments and businesses to take action and divest from Iran using concrete and compelling facts and figures. His or her work will serve as the foundation for critical government and private sector-based policies that prevent the Iranian regime from misusing and taking advantage of international businesses.

A successful candidate will demonstrate a passion for advocacy and combatting the threat of the Iranian regime at the grassroots and policy levels. He or she will also have the capacity to translate ideas into action.
