SUMMER 2010 CWIHP INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
APPLICATION DEADLINE: MONDAY, 29 MARCH 2010
The Cold War International History Project is currently accepting
internship applications for Summer 2010.
Application Deadline: Monday, 29 March 2010
Interns at the Project will assist with research at archives and
libraries, editing document manuscripts, publishing, translating, and
disseminating CWIHP bulletins and working papers, coordinating
scholarly conferences, and answering various information requests.
Interns at CWIHP are at the forefront of the debate and research over
the historiography of the Cold War and will gain valuable knowledge
from interaction with CWIHP staff, Woodrow Wilson Center Fellows as
well as visiting scholars.
CWIHP’s internship appointments are generally consistent with academic
semesters (i.e. Fall, Spring, Summer / three to four months); although
appointments are made throughout the year for periods of varying
length. No internship will exceed one year in duration.
Successful applicants should have strong research and/or
administrative skills; be extremely attentive to detail; be able to
work independently and as part of group; be enrolled in a degree
program, have graduated, and/or have been accepted to enter an
advanced degree program within the next year.
Knowledge of a foreign language (especially Albanian, Czech, German,
Romanian, Mandarin Chinese, Russian, Serbo-Croatian, Hungarian,
Polish, Bulgarian, or Vietnamese) and/or experience with Adobe
InDesign publishing software is helpful, but not necessary.
This internship with the Cold War International History Project is
unpaid, though we do offer interns the opportunity to earn academic
credit in accordance with their programs’ requirements. As a general
rule, our office is looking for individuals who are willing to devote
at least 14 to 21 hours per week.
The Wilson Center is an equal opportunity employer and follows equal
opportunity employment guidelines in the selection of its interns.
Internships are open to all U.S. residents and qualified foreign
students with U.S. Student Visas (F1).
