The New America Future of Property Rights Initiative is seeking an intern for the summer. Interns will work directly for the initiative’s director. The internship is paid $15 per hour and the intern can work for up to 40 hours per week during the summer. The start date of the internship is May 30, 2017 -- this is a hard date due to a large FPR event scheduled for that week.
We are seeking an intern who would be interested in being extended to stay on throughout the 2017-8 academic year, though summer-only applications will be accepted. Please indicate in your cover letter if you would like to intern over the summer and the coming semester(s).
Intellectual curiosity, motivation, and a desire to learn on-the-job. Must be a self-starter and have the ability to work independently and with a team.
Strong research abilities.
Please submit a brief cover letter, resume & writing sample by April 17, 2017. In your cover letter, please emphasize writing experience any experience you have in property rights (either academic or practical), and why you think property rights matter. Writing samples are required, but do not need to be relevant to the position. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.
In addition, please indicate in your cover letter if you would like to intern over the summer and the coming semester(s).
Please no phone calls.
