Carnegie India, the sixth international center of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, opened in April 2016 in New Delhi. As with Carnegie’s centers in Beijing, Beirut, Brussels, Moscow, and Washington, Carnegie India is staffed and led by local experts who collaborate extensively with colleagues around the world.

The center’s research and programmatic focus includes the political economy of reform in India, foreign and security policy, and the role of innovation and technology in India’s internal transformation and international relations. It builds on decades of scholarship on the region across Carnegie’s programs, in particular the work of Vice President of Studies George Perkovich, Senior Fellow Ashley J. Tellis, and Senior Fellow Milan Vaishnav, while placing special emphasis on developing a cadre of young, up-and-coming Indian scholars.

C. Raja Mohan is the founding director of Carnegie India. Carnegie Endowment for International Peace President William J. Burns said of his appointment, “We are very proud to add Carnegie India to Carnegie’s network of international centers. We are especially proud to have Raja Mohan serve as its founding director and grateful for the generous support of our donors and Founders Committee members that made this milestone possible.”

Employment Opportunities

Research Analyst

Carnegie India is inviting applications for a Research Analyst to join the Political Economy program in New Delhi. The Political Economy program studies the role of the Indian state in the economy - especially in areas such as financial markets, land markets, infrastructure regulation and financing, and public expenditure. The research focus is on policies and on institutions that make and enforce the policies. Scholars in the program conduct and publish research, write regularly on contemporary issues, and organise seminars and other events on issues of contemporary relevance to the Indian political economy.

The Research Analyst will support the work of the scholars in the program and also be expected to conduct and publish original research on areas of interest to the program. In the near future, one of the topics of research in the program will be recovery from the impact of Covid-19. The selected candidate will therefore be expected to support and conduct original research on India’s economy, financial markets and emerging fiscal issues. The Research Analyst will also be expected to handle administrative responsibilities related to the overall functioning of the program.

Candidates must demonstrate the requisite qualifications and aptitude for the areas of work described above. A master’s degree in economics, public policy or a related discipline is required, and those with past work experience and/ or research publications will be preferred.

Located in New Delhi, with a presence in Bengaluru, we offer a unique opportunity to work in a global think tank, with a competitive benefits package and salary commensurate with experience.

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other protected group.
