Internship – FixUS (Fall 2022)

Now accepting applications for Fall 2022. Interns will have the opportunity to work remotely until the COVID pandemic abates.

The FixUS initiative is looking for enthusiastic interns to join our team and provide invaluable assistance to a variety of research projects. Responsibilities will include researching and summarizing scholarly work and may also involve attending and summarizing events, developing content for FixUS social media channels, and assisting with polling and/or focus group efforts.
