Spring 2013 Internship
Managing Global Order
Foreign Policy Program
The Managing Global Order in the Foreign Policy Program seeks one part-time or full-time research intern for mid-February through May. The Foreign Policy Program works to influence policies and institutions in the United States and abroad that promote sustainable peace, security, and prosperity around the world. The Managing Global Order project addresses the challenge of reshaping the structures of international order to deal with three related challenges: (i) the rise of newly influential actors on the global stage; (ii) the evolution of transnational and disruptive threats; and (iii) the perceived weakening of Western leadership in international systems.
Qualified applicants will have a demonstrated interest in one or more of the following areas: international security, the global economy, international institutions, resource scarcity, and multilateralism; and extensive experience with quantitative research, a strong background in emerging powers, and/or international institutions. English fluency is required; proficiency in additional language(s) is a plus.
Applicants possessing a Masters degree or equivalent, current graduate students, recent graduates, and senior undergraduate students working towards a degree in a relevant field (e.g., international affairs, political science, international law, international political economy), are encouraged to apply.
Intern responsibilities will include:
The internships are unpaid and interns should expect to work between 20 and 25 hours per week.
- Research issues pertaining to global governance and transnational challenges;
- Conduct quantitative and qualitative research and data analysis;
- Monitor pertinent current events and brief fellow and support staff;
- Attend events in the Washington, DC area and brief fellow and support staff;
- Additional administrative support tasks as needed.
