Are you interested in contributing to the free enterprise movement at one of America's leading think tanks? We have an opportunity for a creative, entrepreneurial, hard-working person to join AEI's external affairs team. You will be responsible for helping market our work to and develop relationships with key leaders in think tanks, business organizations, nonprofits, community groups, and state and local government across the country.

The ideal candidate will be happy in an intellectual, creative, and detail-oriented environment. Day-to-day responsibilities include contact management, event planning and logistics, developing social media content, marketing and outreach, and research. These responsibilities require excellent interpersonal skills, good judgment, attention to detail, and very strong writing and communication skills; the ability to meet tight deadlines and multitask; and a creative and entrepreneurial personality. A demonstrated commitment to AEI's mission is required.

Willingness to work in a fast-paced environment is a must. Bachelor's degree is required. Experience with a contact-management database such as Salesforce is a plus. The position will interface regularly with scholars, research assistants, and members of the broader AEI community.
