Job Openings at the Wilson Center
The Wilson Center consists of two separate, but parallel, pay systems (federal and trust). U.S. Civil Service positions are funded by our annual appropriation from the Congress. Trust positions are funded by private donations, grants and gifts to the Wilson Center.
The Wilson Center is closely monitoring guidelines established by the CDC and other federal and state authorities surrounding COVID-19. At this time, the Center intends to continue its virtual model for the Fall, as created and honed during the Spring and Summer terms. The Center has developed a research-based, in-depth, and phased reopening plan, which considers and includes all WC community members, including its interns. In the event that it is deemed safe for interns to come in-person to the Center by the Reopening Committee, each intern and their respective supervisor will mutually determine the viability of either continuing their internship remotely or allowing the intern to come into the Center on an intermittently scheduled, ad-hoc basis. The Internship Coordinator will keep Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 applicants up to date with any new information as it becomes available. Applicants that have a strong preference for interning remotely for the duration of their internship are encouraged to state this in their cover letter. We encourage any interested applicants to continue to apply as usual, and to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns that they may have.
The Wilson Center offers a number of prestigious fellowships in a variety of regional and disciplinary areas.
