Deadline for applications: Rolling basis

IPI welcomes applications for non-paid internships in our press freedom and communications department. IPI internships require a high degree of initiative and an ability to work independently and in a diverse environment. Candidates should have a keen interest in human rights, particularly media freedom.

IPI generally seeks undergraduate or graduate-level students, or recent graduates seeking experience in an international human rights NGO environment. Interns should be available for approximately 20 hours per week for a term of two to three months.

Candidates must have a very strong command of verbal and written English. Proficiency in additional languages – particularly Turkic, Slavic or Romance languages, or Arabic – is preferred. IPI is also interested in candidates with experience in video production or use of social media.

Responsibilities will include monitoring developments worldwide impacting media freedom; conducting research and interviews; drafting statements, articles and other materials for use by IPI in its advocacy work; and other related tasks.

Candidates should contact IPI Deputy Director Scott Griffen, sgriffen[at]ipi[dot]media, with a resume/CV, a cover letter indicating dates of availability and two writing samples (under 10 pages) demonstrating ability to write in English. No calls, please.
