        HRW Women's Rights Division
        (based preferably in NY; DC base possible)

        Human Rights Watch, the international human rights monitoring and
        advocacy organization, is known for its impartial and reliable human
        rights reporting and its innovative and high-profile advocacy
        campaigns. Its Women's Rights Division was established in 1990 to
        monitor state-sponsored and state-tolerated violence against women and
        sex discrimination in all regions of the world. Much of its work
        consists of gathering detailed information on abuses against women and
        publishing reports that are as reliable, comprehensive and timely as
        possible, so as to effect change in repressive practices. The work of
        the Division seeks to expand the scope of human rights work to address
        abuses against women that have been traditionally overlooked.

        Description: This full-time Researcher will work within the Women's
        Rights Division of Human Rights Watch to improve awareness and
        accountability for human rights violations against women by, among
        other
        things, conducting fact-finding missions; writing and publicizing
        reports on the findings; and presenting human rights concerns to
        government officials, inter-governmental agencies, and the press. The
        researcher's responsibilities will also include monitoring legislative
        and/or policy developments related to women's rights and liaising with
        human rights and women's organizations in the U.S. and in the
        countries
        she or he will cover. She or he will be based preferably in our New
        York City office, although a base in DC may be considered.

        Qualifications: An advanced (graduate) degree in international
        relations, journalism, law or the social sciences as well as prior
        demonstrated experience (two to three years) with human rights and/or
        women's rights issues; regional sub-Saharan Africa expertise is
        required. She or he must have excellent writing, editing, and oral
        communication skills in English. She or he must have experience in
        field research; strong advocacy abilities; and be able to work under
        pressure and juggle multiple tasks, be collegial and team-oriented yet
        able to work independently, and be able to travel overseas for two to
        three weeks at a time.

        Salary & Benefits: Human Rights Watch seeks exceptional candidates
        and
        offers competitive compensation and generous employer-paid benefits.
