Internship

IPCRI interns have the unique opportunity to both engage in policy-relevant research on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and to meet with and engage many of the personalities that shape its dimensions.

IPCRI accepts interns throughout the year. Applications for internships are accepted on a rolling basis. If you are interested in working with IPCRI please indicate the dates you will be available. On average potential interns apply up to half a year before their available dates. However, occasionally a place might open up shorter in advance.

Potential interns must meet the following requirements:

    • Interns must be able to stay with IPCRI for a minimum of two months. Interns that can stay longer receive preference.
    • Interns must be comfortable with working independently and taking on responsibility. IPCRI does not have a sufficient staff to supervise interns on a day-to-day basis.
    • Applicants must be able to write at an academic level in English.

Experience in fundraising, social media strategies as well as proficiency in Hebrew or Arabic are considered a plus. Please note that IPCRI's internships are not paid. IPCRI is not in the financial position to reimburse housing or travel costs.

IPCRI interns typically engage in the following kinds of work:

    • Organizing and attending IPCRI events, including meetings of the Strategic Thinking and Analysis Team (STAT), Wednesday Afternoon Public Meetings, the Economic Working Group, Peace Education Conferences, and others.
    • Administration:
      • Preparation for conferences
      • Grant writing
      • Reporting on events and project activities
    • Participating in IPCRI research. IPCRI is occasionally engaged in a variety of research projects, both independently and in cooperation with other institutions. Interns may have the chance to conduct theoretical and field-based research.
    • IPCRI maintains a very open organizational structure. Interns interested in doing research in a particular field should be prepared to manage themselves. The IPCRI staff can offer its wealth of knowledge and its access to an expansive network, but is often unable to closely monitor independent projects.
