Pew Charitable Trusts:
Just so you know, we could not find this fresh-looking-on-Yahoo! Hotjobs Government Relations Manager opportunity with Availity on their own career site (at least as of this a.m.). Healthcare information network business; DC or Central time zone locations possible.

New-to-newish (in that order) opportunities (probably awesome) with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation – can also search here using DC location or req # noted:
Somebody in our ultra-educated readership must have a PhD in Political Science that they would like to leverage for the Lecturer, Government Department gig with Christopher Newport University, Newport News, Va. CNU particularly covets candidates with a teaching/research background in international political economy and a regional focus on East Asia, South Asia or the Middle East.
