Middle East Institute (MEI) offers an array of positions that engage a wide range of professional interests and talents. On a given day, Dr. Marvin Weinbaum’s Research Assistant might co-author an op-ed with him on Afghanistan’s political culture, while our Programs and Communications interns might organize and help host a conference on the ongoing healthcare crisis for displaced populations. With over 25 intern positions across 7 different departments, we have a variety of internships that attract a diverse pool of interns.
Although our internships are unpaid, MEI works to ensure that its interns are compensated for their contributions. Among other benefits, we offer a free language class, daily travel reimbursement, a year-long online subscription to the Middle East Journal, and a series of talks exclusively dedicated to advancing our interns’ professional careers and their knowledge of the region. Our deadline for fall internships (which run from early September to mid-December) is Tuesday, July 7.
Please forward this email and the attached flier to any students or alums who might be interested and encourage them to find out more information on our website, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
