Internships in Washington, DC

The Center for Hellenic Studies is looking for summer interns! The Summer Internship Program offers undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to work in Washington, D.C. on projects related to Fellowships and Curricular Development (FCD) and Publications.

The internship begins Tuesday, June 7, 2011 and concludes on Friday, July 29, 2011. Interns should plan to arrive on Monday, June 6 with orientation on Tuesday, June 7.

Interns will work approximately 280 hours over the course of the summer and receive $12.00 per hour. Interns typically work 35 hours/week but can expect to work more hours during conferences. The work schedule is flexible and provides ample opportunity to see Washington, D.C.

To assist the publications team, interns will be trained in the process of online and print publication of scholarly resources in Hellenic studies, including style tagging with word processors, creating, editing, and validating XML documents, proofreading publications, and posting them to the CHS website. No prior knowledge of these technologies is required, only the desire to learn them.

Interns will also work with the FCD team on preparations for seminars and conferences. Duties will include, for example, corresponding with participants, entering data, photocopying and scanning, operating video recording equipment and editing videos, and assisting with logistical arrangements and hospitality. Interns will help prepare materials for the fall Sunoikisis courses and are welcome to participate in the planning seminars that will take place from June 11 to 21. Interns may contribute to other FCD projects, including digitizing archives, and they may occasionally work on various tasks in the library.
