LSA Student Internship Opportunity, Fall 2015
The LSA is seeking applications for the position of Student Intern at its national office in Washington, DC for the Fall 2015 semester (September – December). This is a great opportunity to learn more about the field of linguistics, the professional needs of LSA members, and the LSA’s broader agenda to advance the scientific study of language. This internship also provides exposure to the workings of a small non-profit organization based in the nation’s capital.
Interns will gain experience with writing, research, database management, social science policy, and a variety of administrative tasks. The position is open to undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in programs leading to a degree in linguistics or a related field.
Funding is available to support one part-time position at 18 hours per week, with a $2500 stipend. In order to receive a stipend, applicants must be U.S. citizens or foreign nationals with the appropriate work visa.
