Website Maxim Institute

An independent public policy think tank

We’re looking for someone who can join our team in the role of Junior Researcher.


Maxim Institute is an independent think tank working towards a free, just, compassionate, and hopeful Aotearoa New Zealand. We faithfully help leaders make wise decisions. We exist to investigate some of the big issues that shape our nation’s future and to share our findings with leaders and decision-makers. Our research is the engine-room of our work, and we’re looking for someone to join this team. We are based in Auckland.


If you have a heart for the people of Aotearoa New Zealand and the ability to look at an issue in-depth, analyse problems, and communicate recommendations, we would love to hear from you.

We are interested in people with great academic credentials, preferably a Masters, but we would also consider relevant policy experience.


If you’re interested in this role, or know of someone who would be a great fit for our team, please contact us at
