Position description

Turkish Heritage Organization (THO) is seeking a part-time, paid intern for its Washington office to provide research support and administrative assistance for projects and events.

THO is a young nonprofit organization that was established to promote discussion and dialogue around Turkey’s role in the international community and to explore the importance of the U.S.-Turkey bilateral relationship across six issue areas: security, humanitarian aid, economy, energy, education, and technology. Through its portfolio of events, programs, and publications, THO seeks to expand channels of communication and bridge the gap between government officials, opinion leaders, and subject-matter experts.

In supporting the work of a young, dynamic organization, the spring 2017 intern will acquire in-depth experience with THO’s issue areas in the context of U.S.-Turkey relations. The intern will also have the opportunity to contribute original writing and analysis to THO and to meet with government officials and experts through THO’s activities and events.

Intern responsibilities:

  • Conduct research for THO publications and programs;
  • Contribute original writing and analysis;
  • Support THO event planning and execution, including audience building, tracking RSVPs, and creating event materials;
  • Provide additional programmatic and administrative support as necessary.

Qualifications

Successful applicants are generally undergraduate students, graduate students, or recent graduates with an interest in international relations and political science. Applicants should have a strong academic background as well as demonstrated writing and research skills. 

A familiarity with and interest in U.S.-Turkey relations is preferred. Please note that applicants must be authorized to work in the U.S.
