Fall 2016 Research Assistant Internship

Share |

Company/Organization: Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars

Description:

The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars is looking for qualified students (advanced undergraduate or graduate) interested in being part-time research assistant interns in the Fall 2016 semester. An intern typically works 12-15 hours a week per scholar. (The number of hours can be adjusted accordingly to fulfill academic requirements).
The priority deadline to apply is October 10, 2016. We will start matching scholars and interns, but will still accept intern applications after this date. Internship positions are open until filled so applying early is strongly encouraged.

Alon Confino, Professor of History, University of Virginia and Ben-Gurion University, Israel. “Imagining Palestine, 1948: Jews and Palestinians between Local Experience and Global History.” (Arabic)

Guadalupe Correa-Cabrera, Associate Professor of Political Science, University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. “Trafficking in Persons, Irregular Immigration and Transnational Organized Crime in Central America and Mexico.” (Spanish)

Marina Ottaway, Carnegie Foundation. “Arab Countries in Transition.” (Arabic or French)

Qualifications:

Applicants must have at least a cumulative GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) or equivalent from a non-U.S. institution. Furthermore, applicants must be current students, recent graduates (within one calendar year), and/or have been accepted to enter an advanced degree program (within the next year). Non-degree seeking students are ineligible. Most interns are at least seniors in the undergraduate level, though strongly qualified juniors (at the time of application) will be considered. Graduate students are also eligible to apply.

International students studying in the U.S. are eligible, but they must hold a valid F-1 or J-1 visa and appropriate work authorization especially if they are receiving compensation for the internships. All international students must obtain written permission from their Designated School Official or Responsible Officer for visas at their university stating that they are in valid immigration status and eligible to do an internship at the Center.

The Wilson Center is NOT able 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 exchange program or an outside organization (internship placement agency) that will sponsor your visa.

Typical research assistants are students of political science; U.S. government/politics; international relations; history (including US history); foreign languages; international affairs; regional studies; economics; public policy; security studies; journalism and similar disciplines, though students of many other fields of study have sometimes been selected. New scholars are constantly arriving at the Wilson Center, and it can be difficult to predict what specific projects will be carried out in the future. For that reason, all interested students are encouraged to apply.
