Internship Program, Fall 2018 The candidate will work with the National Security and International Policy Internship. Interns have the opportunity to perform extensive research and make substantive contributions to the team's mission and ongoing projects in progressive national security, foreign affairs, and global development. Interns develop the skills and experience needed to contribute effectively to the national security and foreign policy conversation in several key issue areas. Interns are involved in all core activities of the team, learn many of the basic skills it takes to work as a policy professional, and are assigned day-to-day activities to help integrate them into the team's work. Typical responsibilities for National Security and International Policy interns include: research on specific issues; drafting and editing memos, columns, event summaries, and reports; assisting in preparation for events and large meetings; and attending and reporting on policy meetings, seminars, hearings, and lectures. Whenever possible, interns are encouraged to write on a subject of their choice related to the National Security and International Policy team's work, either as a contributor to a larger final project or as an author of a shorter column or piece. Must have excellent oral and written communications skills and knowledge of basic research methods. Should have an interest in helping to promote progressive national security and foreign policy and familiarity with the team's recent work. Candidates with language skills, particularly Arabic and Mandarin, are encouraged to apply. Law students are considered. Note: Part-time students are accepted, but interns must be able to commit to a minimum of 20 hours per week. Duration: September to December Application Deadline: July 1, 2018.
