2 Paid Graduate Fellowships at IPSI

We are currently hiring 2 graduate fellows to assist with our 2016 Summer Symposiums!

Graduate Fellows provide support before, during, and after the Symposiums and work collaboratively with the programs team to organize and prepare for the Symposiums. The Symposiums bring together the globe's brightest minds from top academic institutions, NGOs, international organizations, grassroots peace movements, and the armed services.

The fellows will help us to ensure the Symposiums are great experiences for all the participants. They will assist the Program Directors in a number of tasks, including managing the application system, compiling student materials and documents, arranging logistics, managing the budget, and providing support to participants, among other duties.

Fellows must be currently enrolled in a graduate degree program and currently reside in the Washington, DC area or be willing to relocate to the area for the duration of the fellowship (Note: IPSI does not cover relocation or housing costs). The fellow must be able to travel to Europe for the duration of the Symposium.
