Research and Communications Interns
RESEARCH & COMMUNICATIONS INTERN
Eurasia Group Foundation (EGF) seeks part-time Research and Communications Interns. We are a nonprofit organization founded by board president Ian Bremmer and based in New York City. Our mission is to educate people and amplify voices traditionally underrepresented in the foreign policy conversation, connecting individuals to the geopolitical issues and events that impact their lives.
EGF seeks part-time Research and Communications Interns who can be available for 10 to 20 hours per week for either the Fall, Spring, or Summer semesters. Research and Communications Interns will be working on the Independent America project, a research initiative that explores the advantages and implications of a less militarized, more restrained US foreign policy. Interns may work remotely.
The ideal candidate is an undergraduate or graduate student in international relations, political science, communications, security studies or public policy who is mission-driven, self-directed, a strong writer, and a strategic thinker. The intern should have the ability to distill complex policy documents and research reports into clearly written summaries. An aptitude for either qualitative methods or quantitative methods is desirable. Experience with infographic design, social media or strategy, and journalistic/narrative writing is strongly preferred. This individual will report to EGF’s Senior Researcher and Producer.
EGF is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization committed to helping people make meaning out of the impact geopolitics has on their lives by empowering them to get involved in the issues that matter to them most. EGF takes complex issues and ensures they are accessible to everyone through traditional and nontraditional media, including events and meetings, papers and presentations, videos, infographics, podcasts, and the full array of social media channels. www.egfound.org.
