National Bureau of Asian Research - Trade, Economic & Energy Affairs Intern

Washington, D.C.

The National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR) is seeking paid, full- and part-time interns for 3-6 months to join the Trade, Economic, and Energy Affairs (TEEA) group starting in the fall of 2016. The minimum is three months, but priority is given to those who are available longer.

Project & Work Descriptions
NBR’s Energy Security Program convenes senior policy and industry leaders and Asia energy specialists to engage in high-level discussions of Asia’s energy policies and their implications for geopolitics. Experts share insights and recommendations through a number of channels, including roundtables, a spring workshop, NBR’s annual Energy Security Report, and a public fall launch.

Launched in 2009, NBR’s annual Pacific Energy Summit is an invitation-only event that convenes leaders from government, business, and research to explore innovative solutions to the dual challenges of rising energy demand and climate change. Every year, the Summit engages more than 200 senior policy and industry leaders, representing over 25 countries. By bridging the commercial, public, and nonprofit sectors, the Summit informs policy and inspires collaboration to help support sustainable economic development.

For the Summit series, TEEA interns provide administrative, outreach, and logistical support for the annual Summit; the Capitol Hill discussion and launch of the Summit findings; and roundtables and briefings. Core responsibilities include: conducting background research as necessary, preparing event materials, maintaining registration lists, tracking and following-up on invitations, and assisting with travel and event logistics.

Additionally, interns will support TEEA on other group-related activities, and work closely with project managers and senior experts in developing and managing roundtables, logistics, and outreach, particularly on energy and economic engagement.

Responsibilities include
• Event Planning: Providing administrative support to conferences, workshops, presentations, and briefings.
• Project Assistance: Drafting, reviewing, fact-checking, and proofreading documents related to TEEA programs, including but not limited to briefing materials, agendas, website content, key thematic issues, and related publications.

• Publications Support: Reviewing, fact-checking, proofreading, and formatting publications; assisting with publications distribution.
• Database Administration: Maintaining and updating project databases; data entry and research for institutional and project databases.

• Upperclassman BA student, current MA student, or recent graduate preferred, working towards or holding a relevant degree.
• The ideal applicant should be a motivated self-starter who can work independently or as part of a team; pay acute attention to detail; be organized; work well under pressure; and have excellent written, oral, and research skills.
• S/he must have substantive expertise on specific countries and issues (substantive knowledge and/or language skills) and must be able to understand each project’s scope/relevance in order to work effectively with scholars and other stakeholders.

Eager, Experienced Communicator

McCabe Messages Partners—a DC-based public relations agency focused on health and the issues that affect it—seeks candidates who want to work with supportive clients on meaningful issues in a fast-paced, fun, yet challenging environment. Agency experience is a plus; a penchant for details is a must.

Comprised of more than 20 professionals, some of whom excelled in the healthcare practices of the nation’s largest PR firms, the agency combines the expertise and client roster of a national firm with the heart and soul of a boutique business.

Typical projects will likely include writing news releases, opinion-editorials, and blog posts; compiling comprehensive media lists and conducting targeted pitching; managing digital and social media content; overseeing the design of many products—from engaging infographics and event signage to issue briefs and social shares; routinely managing graphic designers, video production teams and other vendors; conducting research to inform the work we do on clients’ behalf; and more.

Most importantly, the successful candidate will be ready and willing to take a ‘deep dive’ into health and health policy, and excel in juggling multiple time-sensitive projects simultaneously.

Interested candidates should email their resume, with salary requirements, to (use “ROO-5" in the subject line).
