just a word of caution-- all those CAP jobs are REALLY old (i check em every day and even interviewed for one of the more recent listings about 2 or 3 months ago and was told they decided on someone else. I would avoid wasting your time (not on CAP, but these jobs).

The Middle East Institute has extended its fall internship deadline to July 19, 2010. Graduate, undergraduate and PhD students are encouraged to apply. Full-time and part-time internships are available in multiple departments, including research assistants.

I wouldn't waste your time with CAP. They have high turn-over for a reason.
