INTERN JOB POSITIONS

 

HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS MONITOR

Human Rights Violations Monitors will be provided with a list of the precursors to genocide, along with a list of the countries that we are currently monitoring. Each intern will monitor one or more hotspots. The countries that have been the focus of attention in the past include Sudan, Colombia, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Rwanda (the Great Lakes Region), Aceh-Indonesia, Moluccas-Indonesia, Sulawesi-Indonesia, and Borneo. Interns will be responsible for researching their assigned country, looking for news stories from reliable print and online media sources, and updating the Human Rights Violations Chart.

ASSISTANT EDITOR of THE CENTER for the PREVENTION of GENOCIDE JOURNAL

The GPC has an expansive and interactive website and among its many features is the online journal. The inaugural issue was published in late August 2001. Interns would be responsible for not only updating and maintaining the journal, but also for finding legitimate authors who would contribute articles to the journal. Thus, this position requires interns who not only have strong writing skills, but who are also capable of initiating communications with prominent authors within the community.

FULL-TIME RESEARCHER

ITWI requires individuals who have a strong background in research. This position would involve extensive research of a number of different possible areas of interest to ITWI. At times, interns in this position would assist other interns with research into their assigned countries. Those in this position would be responsible for only the research aspects of ITWI and its many projects. Thus, much time will be spent in the libraries around the city, including the Library of Congress.

GRANT WRITER/RESEARCHER

The Center is very active in applying to a number of different types of grants. Interns in this position will be responsible for researching the variety of grants that the Center would qualify for and then writing the grant proposal itself. Interns with a strong background in research and writing would be ideal for this position.

EVENT COORDINATOR

The event coordinator will be responsible for organizing and scheduling conferences, lectures, and fundraising events. Most notably, the event coordinator will be responsible for organization and planning the Center’s continued Lecture Series on Survivors of Modern Genocide, and the accompanying television series.

FUNDRAISING

Interns in this position will plan, develop, and coordinate various fundraising events. The GPC is looking for individuals who have initiative and can use their creativity to develop relationships with key fundraisers in the community.

PUBLIC RELATIONS
Interns in this position will be responsible for all aspects of advertising for the Center. This will involve devising an advertising campaign, as well as making contacts with local television and radio stations. This position also involves UN Outreach, US Government Outreach, Community Outreach, and Business Outreach.

SATELLITE IMAGERY
The Center has been given access to satellite imagery technology, which will play a key role in our ability to make a determination as to whether genocide is occurring in a particular region. Interns who choose to work with this technology will be trained by experts in the area of satellite technology, and will have hands-on experience in using this technology.

OFFICE MANAGER & ASSISTANT OFFICE MANAGER
The GPC currently needs interns to fill the positions of office manager and assistant office manager. Duties in these positions will involve administrative oversight, project supervision, and assistant to the President.

Also Other Positions Available:

1: Assistant to the President.
