DESCRIPTION

Ethics & International Affairs, the journal of the Carnegie Council, seeks a volunteer intern for the summer. The goal of the journal is to integrate rigorous thinking about principles of ethics and justice into discussions of the practical policy dilemmas that frequently arise in global politics. Some topics that the journal commonly publishes on include the ethics of war, the responsibility to protect, international migration, climate change, human rights, and sustainable development.

The internship is an excellent opportunity to receive training and develop broadly applicable skills for a future in academia, the nonprofit sector, or the publishing industry.

The volunteer intern’s tasks will include:

  • Reading and critically assessing manuscript submissions
  • Facilitating the peer-review process
  • Record-keeping and administrative tasks
  • Drafting and editing various blog posts and manuscripts for publication
  • Occasionally providing staff support at Carnegie Council events

REQUIREMENTS

Candidates MUST be graduate students (or have recently obtained a graduate degree) in International Affairs, Political Science, Philosophy, International Law or related areas; have a solid understanding of normative and empirical issues in international relations, global policy, and economics; excellent writing skills; attention to detail; strong Web and electronic database research skills; and excellent familiarity with Microsoft Word and Excel. Candidates are strongly encouraged to gain general familiarity with the substance of the journal.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

The intern will work on a voluntary, unpaid basis and will receive training and hands-on experience in return. School credit can be arranged, and the intern will receive $25 per day as reimbursement for transportation and food expenses. We require interns to work from our office in New York for twelve to fifteen hours a week, and to commit to staying on for the entire summer, although start and end dates are flexible. The intern also receives credit on the journal’s masthead.

 APPLICATION PROCESS

Please email a resume and cover letter to associate editor John Krzyzaniak at journal@cceia.org. Interested candidates should submit applications by 5pm ET on Monday, April 29, 2019. You may only apply for one type of internship with the Carnegie Council per semester.

Qualified candidates will be contacted for interviews promptly once the application window has closed.
