New America’s International Security Program (ISP) seeks graduate-student applicants who have a strong interest in research and writing on health and science for this unique Science Writing Intern opening. ISP has created a new daily brief newsletter related to COVID-19, which can be read here:
The science writing intern will primarily assist the program’s full-time staff members with research, data collection, and policy analysis for the COVID-19 brief. This includes researching, gathering, and synthesizing articles related to the coronavirus pandemic, particularly health and science, among other topics as they arise. The intern may also assist with other research, data collection, and policy analysis for internal projects and policy reports. Interns must be self-starters who are excited to work both independently and as part of a team on a variety of international security-related research projects.
New America is a nonprofit, nonpartisan public policy institute that invests in new thinkers and new ideas to address the next generation of challenges facing the United States.
