CHS Fall Internship in Washington, DC

Fellowships and Curricular Development (FCD) Internship

Fall Semester, 2014

The application for this internship is now closed.
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 assist the Fellowships and Curricular Development (FCD) team for the fall semester of 2014.
Note: The CHS also offers summer internships. Because the FCD intern will be assisting application processing for all CHS programs, he or she will be ineligible for any internship programs in the summer of 2015.


The FCD intern will assist in various tasks such as processing applications for programs, compiling and editing promotional materials and newsletters, scanning documents, editing videos produced by the CHS, and providing other clerical and administrative assistance as required. Administrative duties may include but will not be limited to answering phones, sorting mail, mailing packages, and providing assistance to CHS visitors.
Additionally, the FCD intern is expected to assist with and attend any CHS events that occur on Saturdays, for example, the CHS Fellows Research Symposium (December 5-6, 2014).
The intern will use Mac OS X and Microsoft Office. Interns will also learn and work with Adobe Acrobat Pro, iMovie, Google Documents, Open Office, and web-based programs and sites such as Sakai and WordPress.


Part-time, 10-15 hours per week, $12.00/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.
The CHS is closed for all federal holidays and for a short winter break, December 24, 2014-January 2, 2015.
