American politics is broken, with the far left and far right making it increasingly impossible to govern. This will not change until a vibrant center emerges with an agenda that appeals to the vast majority of the American people.

This is the mission of The New Center, which aims to establish the ideas and the community to create a powerful political center in today’s America.

Overview and Responsibilities

The Policy Analyst will conduct in-depth research, write papers and briefs, and join a growing team working to build a comprehensive new policy platform for the political center in America. Working closely with the policy team and senior advisors, the Policy Analyst will:

  • Research an array of issue areas including health care, technology, economics, governance, social policy, national security, constitutional and civil rights issues, and climate/energy
  • Write policy papers and blog posts that examine complex issues in a way that is accessible and interesting to both political insiders and general interest audiences
  • Provide copy edits and feedback for other members of the policy team
  • Assist the digital communications team as needed in the development of The New Center’s presence across social media
  • Assist in the supervision of policy interns


The ideal candidate will have:

  • A bachelor’s degree in political science, government, public policy, international relations, or a related area
  • At least 1-2 years of relevant experience (including internships) 
  • Strong writing and editing skills
  • An ability to translate complex ideas into simple, compelling, and accessible content
  • A thorough understanding of public policy and the political forces that are making government increasingly dysfunctional
  • A passion for reinvigorating the political center in America
  • Comfort working with a diverse team of thinkers and strategists

The New Center is based in Washington, DC
