The Cold War International History Project is currently accepting internship applications for Fall 2010.
Application Deadline: Monday, 2 August 2010
Visit www.cwihp.org for more information.
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 international students with F or J visas.
