SPRING 2022 Wilson Center Research Assistantship

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 Spring 2022 semester. Most scholars who come to the Wilson Center spend their time carrying out research, writing books, and making public presentations. Research assistant interns have the unique opportunity to work directly with these experts, as they examine issues of contemporary public policy or explore topics that provide the historical context behind today’s pressing policy debates. 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 is 5 pm October 22, 2021. Applications will be accepted after this deadline only until the position is filled.
