Ethics & International Affairs, the journal of the Carnegie Council, seeks a remote 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 emerging technology.
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
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 remotely on a volunteer basis and will receive training and hands-on experience in return. School credit can be arranged, and the intern will receive a stipend of $25 per day. We require interns to work for twelve to fifteen hours a week, including participating in weekly team meetings via video conference. We ask that candidates commit to staying on for the entire summer (June – August), although exact start and end dates are flexible. The intern also receives credit on the journal’s masthead and will have the opportunity to participate in further career development and educational opportunities offered to all interns at the Council.
