He worked as Director of Vocational Institute for Teachers (2000-2003) and Editor of daily newspaper, Kabardino-Balkarsakia Pravda (2006-2007).[3] After Zhemukhov moved to the United States in 2011, USCIS awarded him EB-1 visa known as "Einstein visa" in the category "outstanding professors or researchers." Zhemukhov worked at George Washington University[4] and at University of Maryland Baltimore County.[5] He taught courses in European studies, international affairs, and the Middle Eastern studies, and was nominated for the 2019 Kendall Service Excellence in Teaching Award.

Institute of International Education named him the 2016 Featured Scholar.

In 2010, Zhemukhov founded NGO Circassiada (with Alexei Bekshokov), published a monthly newspaper Voice of Kabarda, and climbed Mt Elbrus in an effort to attract attention to grievances about the Circassian genocide. He expressed his initiatives in an article Skating On Thin Ice in Sochi[6] featured in The New York Times "Idea of the Day" section.[7]
