Position Description

The Chicago Council on Global Affairs is an independent, nonpartisan membership organization that provides insight—and influences the public discourse—on critical global issues. It convenes leading global voices, conduct independent research, and engage the public to explore ideas that will shape our global future. The primary responsibility of the Global Cities Fellow is to work with the Global Cities team within the Studies department to develop policy-focused research, writing, and public education outreach on best policies and practices of global cities from a comparative perspective, particularly in relation to the foreign policy of cities, climate change, immigration, pandemics and healthy cities, urban violence, and/or inequality. Within one or more of these areas, under the guidance and in collaboration with the Director of Global Cities, the Fellow focuses first on identifying best practices and lessons learned, and then on communicating the findings in an accessible manner to engage the general public and decision makers in the form of a final research report as the author or co-author.
