Just Security Blog Seeks Two Summer Interns (Application due date: April 15, 2014)
March 18, 2014

The Just Security Blog, an online forum for high-level discussion of law, rights, and U.S. national security based at the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice and the NYU School of Law, is now accepting applications for two internship positions for the summer 2014.  Interns will be responsible for maintaining the Just Security site (including organizing and formatting blog posts, review readers submission emails and letters to the editor, assisting with maintaining social media accounts, copy editing, etc), managing “The Pipeline” feature of the website, providing research support to staff and contributors, and performing other administrative assistance.

The Just Security staff is composed of a small team; therefore, interns will be expected and encouraged to take ownership of other individual projects, and additional responsibilities will be given to interns who are interested and have proven themselves capable.

The position will receive a modest stipend and a preference is given to applicants who can commit to work at least 4 days per week at the Just Security offices at the NYU School of Law.

For applicants who are not currently based in New York City, Just Security may be able to assist interns with securing summer housing at NYU School of Law housing (pending availability).


Start and end dates are flexible to accommodate for interns’ host school schedules, but Just Security asks that the interns be available for at least a 10-week period between May-August 2014. Contingent upon performance and availability, there is a possibility to continue the internship beyond the summer semester.


Ideal candidates will be undergraduate students (strong preference for juniors/seniors) or recent graduates with an interest in national security, government, and/or law.  Candidates with experience with WordPress is preferred, but not required.  Successful candidates will have strong research and writing skills. Students majoring in English, Communications, Political Science, Government, International Affairs or similar fields are desired.  Applicants with prior relevant work experience are strongly preferred.
