Monday, January 16th, 2012

CEMAT is searching for a short-term program fellow for Spring 2012 (four to six months) to assist the Director with new local and international partnerships. The fellow will be expected to perform a variety of program-related and administrative tasks and show flexibility with CEMAT’s high-paced position within a rapidly changing political environment. Main responsibilities will include working on new partnerships with development and educational programs as well as identifying new and suitable partners for CEMAT. The fellow will be expected to work 30 hours a week, which will allow her/him to conduct own research or pursue language study, if desired. The fellow will have the option to reside in subsidized housing in Sidi Bou Said, receive a modest monthly stipend, and an economy-class round-trip ticket to and from Tunis.
