Angelina Jolie is considering a promotion at a UN refugee agency.

The 36-year-old actress and humanitarian is considering a move from her current position as a UNHCR goodwill ambassador to a more expanded role that she and the agency are still discussing, according to the Associated Press.

"We are looking at a few countries in the world," Jolie told the news wire. "We're hoping to discuss it in the next few weeks, but we want to research it properly."

Jolie has been a UNHCR goodwill ambassador since 2001. Since then, she has made humanitarian trips to many countries, including Pakistan last year.

Jolie told diplomats Tuesday that her work for them has been "moving, sometimes heartbreaking, but always rewarding, and unforgettable."

The mother of six has been in the news recently for her high-profile relationship with actor Brad Pitt, and the speculation that the two will soon wed (read story). The couple shares six children together, and have been dating for at least five years.
