Internships with the North Korea International Documentation Project
Application Deadline for Summer 2015: 15 March 2015
The North Korea International Documentation Project is currently accepting internship applications for Summer 2015
The North Korea International Documentation Project (NKIDP) serves as an informational clearinghouse on North Korea for both the scholarly and policymaking communities by widely disseminating newly declassified documents on the DPRK from its former communist allies as well as other resources that provide valuable insight into the actions and nature of the North Korean state.
Interns at the Project will assist with research at local archives and libraries, cataloging and editing translations of documents for the Wilson Center Digital Archive, assembling and publishing document collections, disseminating NKIDP publications, coordinating scholarly conferences, and answering various information requests. Interns at NKIDP will develop an appreciation for the deep continuities in North Korean policies and the relevance of history in contemporary policy formation toward the DPRK. Interns will also gain valuable knowledge from interaction with NKIDP staff, visiting scholars, and Woodrow Wilson Center fellows.
NKIDP's internship appointments are generally consistent with academic semesters (i.e. Fall, Spring, Summer for three to four months); although appointments are made throughout the year for periods of varying length. No internship will exceed one year in duration.
NKIDP is unable to sponsor visas for interns. If you are an international student not already studying in the U.S. on a F-1 or J-1 visa, then you have to go through a university or an outside organization (internship placement agency) that will sponsor your visa.
