ASI Call for Interns, Fall 2019

This is a call for interns in various positions at the Arab Studies Institute for the Fall of 2019. Below are the specific positions available, as well as general needs and availabilities for interns at the Institute. All ASI team members volunteer their time to one extent or another. “Internships” fit into this formula during the initial internship period with the possibility of a stipend henceforth. Stipends at ASI continue to be modest as a function of our solidarity-based mode of operation.

ASI is looking for candidates who are self-motivated, prone to collaborative efforts, and eager to develop their skills in a variety of respects. Despite specialization in particular areas, ASI interns will be trained to develop various sets of skills (including writing, type-setting, editing, networking, managing, and/or administrating), especially if they remain on board for more than one term.
