Student Outreach/Research Interns volunteers will be required to attend and assist with CSIPS conferences, workshops, and events as necessary. Students should display a keen interest in matters relating to one of the core CSIPS strands: law, politics, economics, or diplomacy and international relations, evidenced by previous experience and/or current studies.
Students will be granted complimentary access to CSIPS events where they are helping and may be asked to assist with logistics including video recording, mic pass, and audience reception. They will be also be responsible for assisting in maintaining social media presence (Twitter/Facebook/Instagram), live tweeting, and extending the centre’s reach on these platforms.
Outside of CSIPS events, student outreach/research volunteers will also gain valuable experience carrying out research on current topics of CSIPS interest and are encouraged to put forward their own. They will also be expected to submit regular opinion pieces and short reports for publication with CSIPS. Full credit for output and publications will be given, allowing for career and research experience growth.
Student outreach volunteers provide a vital link between the work of the centre and the next generations of peacemakers. They will also be asked to liaise with relevant organisations. They may be invited to attend important events on behalf of CSIPS, creating reports for the Director on main themes of discussion and potentially launching a new field of research or collaboration with partner organisations and universities.
Applications should be made FAO Director Sherif Elgebeily at admin@csips.org and should include:

  1.  a brief cover letter outlining their interest in the role and what they feel they might offer CSIPS; and
  2. a CV including any relevant previous experience, current studies, relevant memberships, and relevant publications.
