The American Security Project is looking for current or recently graduated students interested in hands-on public policy experience for full- and part-time internships. Interns will support ASP researchers and staff in multiple areas including communications, development, programming and research.
Our current needs are in the following areas:
- Energy security
- Climate Security
- Asymmetric Operations & Terrorism
- American Competitiveness & Economic Diplomacy
- Public Diplomacy
- Nuclear Security & Iran
- External Relations
Internships are unpaid, though a transportation stipend is provided and current students may arrange to obtain course credit for their work. Applicants must be at least a junior in college, though recent graduates and graduate students are encouraged to apply. The ideal candidate should have a strong interest in our research agenda, national security and foreign policy issues, and be authorized to work in the United States. Strong writing skills are required, as is the ability to work independently. Experience in research, campaign organization and/or new media is highly desired.
Applicants for the 2015 Fall semester (September through December) should send a cover letter, resume, references and a short writing sample (2 pg. max) to Maggie Feldman-Piltch at email@example.com no later than July 31, 2015.
Please clearly indicate the (up to 3) research field(s) you are interested in working in.
