The Harvard Center for Hellenic Studies (CHS), a research institution devoted to the study of all aspects of ancient Hellenic civilization, seeks an intern to serve as an office assistant from September 1, 2017-May 1, 2018.


Part-time, approximately 10 hours per week, $14.00/hour. The CHS is open 9 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday, and the intern can choose to work flexible hours within this timeframe.

Other duties may include but will not be limited to processing applications for programs and editing videos or other media produced by the CHS.
