About the role
The role of a Junior Fellow at the Institute is to lead research teams and deliver research output. The role requires strong leadership and problem-solving skills to tackle pressing policy challenges at the national and state level. Typically, you will be in charge of a research project, which can be a government engagement (funded by a grant) or an independent study that broadly fits within our research pillars. You will be working as a team with other researchers at the Institute. Your key responsibility will be to deliver research reports, working papers, and briefing papers. While this is primarily a research role, your other responsibilities may include writing proposals, project management, and providing inputs to senior fellows and management on strategy and process management. Your work may require you to travel to other Indian cities for meetings with government agencies and officials.
