Just Security Internship, Summer 2014

The Just Security Blog (https://www.justsecurity.org), an online forum for high-level discussion of law, rights, and U.S. national security based at the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice and the NYU School of Law, is now accepting applications for two internship positions for the summer 2014.  Interns will be responsible for maintaining the Just Security site (including organizing and formatting blog posts, review readers submission emails and letters to the editor, assisting with maintaining social media accounts, copy editing, etc), managing “The Pipeline” feature of the website, providing research support to staff and contributors, and performing other administrative assistance.

The Just Security staff is composed of a small team; therefore, our interns will be expected and encouraged to take ownership of other individual projects, and additional responsibilities will be given to interns who are interested and have proven themselves capable.

The position will receive a modest stipend and a preference is given to applicants who can commit to work at least 4 days per week at our offices at the NYU School of Law.

Timing:

Start and end dates are flexible to accommodate for interns’ school schedules, but we ask that the interns be available for at least a 10-week period between May-August 2014. Contingent upon performance and availability, there is a possibility to continue the internship beyond the summer semester.
