Internship Program Description
Interns at the Project will assist with research at local archives and libraries, cataloging and editing translations of documents, assembling and publishing document collections, disseminating NKIDP publications, coordinating scholarly conferences, and answering various information requests. Interns at NKIDP will develop an appreciation for the deep continuities in North Korean policies and the relevance of history in contemporary policy formation toward the DPRK. Interns will also gain valuable knowledge from interaction with NKIDP staff, visiting scholars, and Woodrow Wilson Center fellows.

NKIDP's internship appointments are generally consistent with academic semesters (i.e. Fall, Spring, Summer for three to four months); although appointments are made throughout the year for periods of varying length. No internship will exceed one year in duration.

Successful applicants should have strong research and/or administrative skills; be extremely attentive to detail; be able to work independently and as part of group; be enrolled in a degree program, have graduated, and/or have been accepted to enter an advanced degree program within the next year.

This internship with the North Korea International Documentation Project is unpaid, though we do offer interns the opportunity to earn academic credit in accordance with their programs' requirements.
