  • Contribute with research in conflict specific groups with particular interest for Danish foreign policy.
  • Support the development of conflict analysis materials for internal and external purposes.
  • Support the development of external relations for future use and manage tools to help streamline the conflict analysis.

The position is flexible in nature but offers an excellent opportunity to gain valuable experience in a Danish think tank. The successful candidate will discover how a think tank approaches conflicts from an academic yet promoting point of view. She/he will learn how to identify and link conflict elements, foreign, security or development policy with RIKO viewpoints and develop a prospecting analysis.

  • Attention to detail, ability to work independently with tight deadlines.
  • Excellent, demonstrated English language writing skills.
