Kissinger Institute Call for Research Assistants

The Wilson Center has an immediate part-time Research Assistant internship opening with a Kissinger Institute visiting scholar from mid-September to early/mid-December 2017, in Washington, DC:

Aynne Kokas, Assistant Professor of Media Studies, University of Virginia. “The New Cybersovereigns: Media, Data, and Security in Sino-US Relations.”

A student with an academic background in Computer Science, Political Science, Security Studies, or Media Studies would be ideal.  Having native or advanced Mandarin Chinese language skills is preferred.  Having experience scraping APIs would also be helpful.

Professor Kokas will be in residence at the Wilson Center through May so extending the internship in to the Spring 2018 semester may be possible.

If you don’t need academic credit, a modest monthly stipend is available.

If interested, current students and recent graduates should send a resume (with references); cover letter (indicating availability and academic interests); short writing sample (with bibliography); and unofficial transcripts to internships@wilsoncenter.org by September 20, 2017.  The position is open until filled so applying early is encouraged.
