The Free State Foundation (FSF), a leading non-profit think tank, seeks a Vice-President/Senior Fellow to advance the organization’s mission by helping to promote, through research and educational activities, the understanding of free market, limited government, and rule of law principles at the federal level and in Maryland.
As a senior executive official of the Foundation, established in 2006, the Vice-President/Senior Fellow will help to manage Foundation staff, in the Washington, DC area and in remote locations, and guide their substantive work primarily in the communications law and policy and intellectual property areas. The incumbent will also be responsible for closely editing substantively the work of other staff members, producing his/her own scholarly writings, coordinating and expanding the efforts of members of the well-respected Foundation Board of Academic Advisors, and serving as one of the public spokespersons for the organization. This may include testifying before Congress, appearing on radio and television, preparing press advisories, reaching out to journalists to communicate the positions of the Foundation, and organizing and speaking at Foundation-hosted events.
As Vice-President, the incumbent will also be responsible, along with the President, for maintaining broad financial support for the organization across a wide array of constituencies. The Vice-President reports to the President of the Foundation.
