He is also a senior fellow at the Belfer Center at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government; a research associate at the Middle East Institute at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs; and a fellow of the Palestinian Academic Society for the Study of International Affairs (Jerusalem).

Following a 29-year career in the U.S. Foreign Service, Ambassador Kurtzer retired in 2005 with the rank of Career-Minister. From 2001-2005 he served as the U.S. Ambassador to Israel and from 1997-2001 as the U.S. Ambassador to Egypt. He served as a political officer at the American embassies in Cairo and Tel Aviv, deputy director of the Office of Egyptian Affairs, speechwriter on the policy planning staff, deputy assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern Affairs and principal deputy assistant secretary of state for Intelligence and Research.
