The CHS seeks two interns to manage the Sunoikisis course-planning and faculty-development seminars. During the second week of June, Sunoikisis faculty will meet to plan courses for fall 2017.

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Phase 1: Conducting research and preparing assignments in order to contribute to conversations concerning the design of the courses; creating and editing content on websites.
  • Phase 2: Taking notes and providing general assistance during the seminar sessions and participating in the seminar; assisting with logistical arrangements that pertain to accommodations and meals for the participants; cleaning up after breaks and dinners.
  • Phase 3: Processing videos and creating podcasts from the seminar sessions; creating and editing content on websites.

The interns will reside on the CHS campus from June 1-19 and will receive a stipend of $1500. Interns will be responsible for their travel to and from Washington, DC.

Interns will use Mac OS X and Microsoft Office. Interns will also work with Adobe Acrobat Pro, Final Cut Pro, Google Documents, Open Office, and web-based programs and sites such as Sakai and WordPress. No prior knowledge of these technologies is necessary; all that is necessary is the desire and ability to learn them.


Current undergraduates from colleges and universities in the United States may apply. Any concentration or major is eligible; but a strong interest in Ancient Greek or Latin is preferred. Applicants must demonstrate the internship’s relevance to their studies and future career plans.


The application is now closed.
