    This position is located in the Mexico Institute at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars (Wilson Center), and it is seeking to hire a Program Associate to coordinate the Institute’s work on international migration. The Wilson Center was established by an Act of Congress in 1968 as the national, living memorial honoring President Woodrow Wilson.

    Along with the National Gallery of Art and Kennedy Center, it is one of the three entities affiliated with the Smithsonian Institution, and is governed by its own presidentially appointed Board of Trustees. The Center provides a non-partisan policy forum for tackling issues through independent research and open dialogue that seeks to inform actionable ideas for the policy community and the public at large. It offers a bridge between the world and Washington and between critical ideas and policy practice. Most of the Center's outreach efforts take place within the Center itself, but some of the activities take place in the region.

    The incumbent works with the Mexico Institute Director to develop a wide range of initiatives on Mexico, U.S.-Mexico relations, and Mexican and Central American migration to the United States, Mexico’s management of transmigration and temporary agricultural workers, and Hispanic communities in the United States.
