Resident Scholar Leon Aron directs AEI’s Russian studies program. The Russian studies intern will be responsible for researching current events in Russian — particularly political and cultural changes since the fall of Communism, the Russian economy, and Russian foreign policy — to create a daily packet of analytical pieces that will help inform a longer-term understanding of the direction of Russian actions and policies. The intern will also conduct research in support of journal publications, op-eds, and books and assist in organizing AEI conferences and panel discussions.
The ideal intern candidate will have a strong interest in Russian current affairs, Russian history, and the history of ideas. A capacity and enthusiasm for archival research and reading fluency in Russian are necessary. The ideal candidate will have a strong academic record, demonstrated interest in public policy, and prior research or office experience.
AEI’s fall 2021 internship cohort and related programming will take place in person at our office in Washington, DC. However, some positions may join our program remotely on a case-by-case basis. Please indicate in your cover letter if you are interested in participating in our cohort remotely.
There will be two start dates for the fall program: September 13 and September 20, 2021. The program will run for a minimum of 10 weeks, although most interns’ end dates fall around mid-December.
