China Analyst

Baron conducts in-depth research into China and the U.S.-China relationship in support of clients in the Fortune 100 and the U.S. Department of Defense.


More than 20 years after the normalization of trade relations, U.S. government and business leaders increasingly struggle to navigate China. This challenge reflects not only the daunting complexity of China, but also the limitations of mainstream analysis. Despite decades of effort, conventional China consultancies have proven unable to anticipate and specifically apply the trends that today confound American decision makers. Baron’s China advisory practice mitigates the deficiencies of standard approaches to offer U.S. government and private-sector clients unparalleled insights into China and the U.S.-China relationship.



Interested candidates should complete the below application including submitting a writing sample, a cover letter, transcripts (official or unofficial), and a resume. The writing sample should demonstrate excellent writing skills on a China-related topic. In your cover letter, please describe Baron’s China practice aligns with your interests and objectives.



$60,000 to $70,000 annually, depending on experience.


Role begins as a three-month contract with transition to full-time employee status dependent on review.


Baron does not sponsor work visas and requires the ability to work in-person in Washington D.C.
