CWIHP Internship Opportunities
CWIHP is currently accepting internship applications for the Spring 2012 academic
Application Deadline: 15 November 2011

The Cold War International History Project (CWIHP) at the Woodrow Wilson Center is
currently accepting internship applications for the Spring 2012 academic semester.
The Project supports the full and prompt release of historical materials by governments on
all sides of the Cold War, and seeks to accelerate the process of integrating new sources,
materials and perspectives from the former "communist bloc" with the historiography of
the Cold War which has been written over the past few decades largely by Western
scholars reliant on Western archival sources. It also seeks to transcend barriers of
language, geography, and regional specialization to create new links among scholars
interested in Cold War history.

Interns at the Project will assist with research at archives and libraries, editing document
manuscripts, publishing, translating, and disseminating CWIHP bulletins and working
papers, coordinating scholarly conferences and answering various information requests.
Interns at CWIHP are at the forefront of the debate and research over the historiography of
the Cold War and will gain valuable knowledge from interaction with CWIHP staff,
Woodrow Wilson Center Fellows as well as visiting scholars.

CWIHP's internship appointments are generally consistent with academic semesters (i.e.
Fall, Spring, Summer / three to four months); although appointments are made throughout
the year for periods of varying length. No internship will exceed one year in duration.

Successful applicants should have strong research and/or administrative skills; be
extremely attentive to detail; be able to work independently and as part of group; be
enrolled in a degree program, have graduated, and/or have been accepted to enter an
advanced degree program within the next year. Knowledge of a foreign language
(especially Albanian, Bulgarian, Czech, German, Hungarian, Korean, Mandarin Chinese,
Polish, Romanian, Russian, Serbo-Croatian or Vietnamese), is helpful, as is knowledge of
Adobe InDesign publishing software or coursework/experience in library science.

As a general rule, our office is looking for individuals who can work between 14 and 35

The Wilson Center is an equal opportunity employer and follows equal opportunity
employment guidelines in the selection of its interns. Internships are open to all U.S.
residents and qualified international students with F or J visas.

Unpaid internships are an often way to break out of the catch 22 situation of not being able
get a job without experience. Unfortunately this can be harder than it sounds as
development internships can be extremely competitive.

At Devex, we want to help you turn your passion into your profession so we have
canvassed some of the world’s leading development recruiters and successful interns, on
your behalf, for their top tips to help you get your foot in the door and your CV at the top of
the pile.

Here are our top five internship advice articles:

       How to Network Your Way to an Aid Internship
       USAID Internships: Who's Eligible, and How to Apply Successfully (webinar clip)
       Network Your Way into the UN
       World Bank Internships: When to Apply & What to Expect (webinar clip)
       UNICEF's Main Hiring Needs (webinar clip)

You’ll need to provide your name and email to access some of these articles, but that’s no
biggie because my second tip for you is to create an email alert for the specific
organization/industry you are interested in working in. This alert delivers the latest news of
your interest straight to your inbox allowing you to keep up-to-date and competitive. You
can also do this for career advice articles, events and business news. After you create

can’t be ‘googled’).

    Programme, which will take place August – November 2012. Deadline to apply is 20 April 2012.

in early June. The second group starts in August and finishes in late November or early-

Candidates from both NATO member countries and NATO Associate countries are welcome
to apply for the Research Assistant Programme.

Every effort is made to assess applications objectively, but many factors must be taken into
account. These include the need for a regional balance among participants in the programme.
Consequently, it is rare to select two candidates from the same nation for the same intake.

Due to the large number of applicants, only candidates selected to participate will be
contacted. The names of those selected will be published on this website.

All applications from candidates with the appropriate qualifications are placed on a list for
consideration. Their names remain on the list for consideration for about twelve months.

apply but should recognize that during their tenure with the NATO PA, their workday will be

The International Secretariat of the Assembly is based in Brussels and is staffed by some 30
people from the various NATO member countries. The main task of research assistants is to
contribute, at the request of Committee Directors or Senior Management, to the research
necessary for the drafting of the Assembly reports and other documents. The job occasionally
entails some administrative work, but most tasks are research oriented.

Research assistants are recruited for a four to five-month period with a one-month probationary
period. Due to the Assembly's work schedule, research assistants are usually requested to
commence work either in late January or late August. The stipend is EURO 720 net per month.
The Assembly provides a spacious and recently renovated shared five-bedroom townhouse in the
European quarter of Brussels free of charge for the Researchers, as well as a basic health
insurance policy for the duration of the internship.

Candidates should be completely fluent in oral and written English and/or French. If neither is
