The American Philosophical Association seeks one or more volunteer interns for the 2014 fall semester.
Interns with the American Philosophical Association support the work of the APA's national office staff and board of officers, serve the APA's membership, and promote the discipline of philosophy. This is an excellent opportunity for interns to learn about the internal operations of a national nonprofit organization.
Internship projects are tailored to the skills and interests of selected candidates and may include the following:
Assisting with meetings preparation
Assisting with the development of a guide to undergraduate philosophy programs
Researching and reporting on the demographic makeup of the discipline of philosophy, including statistical analysis
Assisting with the development of new online and print resources
Developing and running member satisfaction surveys
Assessing and improving office and association policies, procedures, and practices
Assisting with the implementation of the APA strategic plan
Assisting committees with projects under the supervision of a committee chair
Assisting the national office staff with additional projects as needed
Identifying and suggesting additional projects
The APA gives preference to applicants who can work at our national office, which is located on the University of Delaware campus in Newark, DE. However, telecommuting internships may be arranged for exceptional candidates.
A minimum commitment of 10 hours per week is required for all internships.
To apply, fill out our online submission form and upload (as a single PDF file) a resume and cover letter detailing your interest in the position. Electronic applications only—no snail mail or phone calls, please. Applications will be accepted until all positions are filled.
