National Bureau of Asian Research - Congressional & Media Relations Internship

Washington, D.C.

The National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR) is recruiting a Congressional & Media Relations Intern to support congressional and media-related initiatives in our Washington, D.C. office. The intern will help deliver research on critical Asia issues to U.S. policymakers and the media, and have the opportunity to contribute to publications for congressional staff. This unique experience provides exposure to NBR’s research programs and network of scholars.

The Congressional & Media Relations Internship is an unpaid, volunteer, part-time position (8-16 hours per week). The intern will be a key member of NBR’s Outreach team for 3-6 months, beginning in the fall of 2016. The minimum time commitment is 3 months. This position reports to the Associate Director of Government and Media Relations. The internship, though volunteer, pays a nominal stipend. Students are also encouraged to apply for credit or funding through their home institution.

• Writing and Research: develop content and contribute to NBR partnerships, including the Senate India Caucus, U.S.-China Working Group, and Senate Chiefs of Staff Foreign Affairs Study Group; this involves interviewing Asia-policy experts, writing and editing content, and developing NBR’s congressional newsletters
• Congressional Outreach Support: provide research, planning, and logistical support for meetings and briefings on Capitol Hill
• Media Outreach: assist with media outreach, including drafting press releases, placing op-eds, taking photographs, and developing strategic media plans for flagship events such as NBR’s Engaging Asia, Pacific Energy Summit, and the annual Strategic Asia book launch
• Social Media: track news, draft social media posts, and help develop and implement strategies to increase NBR’s visibility
• Website Management: support updates to NBR’s congressional and media webpages
• Current BA/BS/MA/MS student, working toward a relevant degree, e.g., international affairs, communications, political science
• Strong interest in U.S.-Asia relations, communications, and government affairs
• Experience using social media tools in a professional setting preferred, but not necessary
• Excellent writing, proofreading, research, and interpersonal skills are required. Editing skills are a plus
• Motivated self-starter with strong organizational skills who pays attention to detail
• Knowledge of web/graphic design is a plus
