Internships & Community Projects

AUC

Interested in issues concerning non-Western political thought? Then this research internship offered by Dr. E. Cohen de Lara, teacher of Political Sciences at AUC, might be interesting for you.

 

 

For this internship the student is asked to focus on one non-Western tradition of political thought, such as the Arabic/Chinese/South-East Asian/African/Latin American tradition. The student is asked to work on an overview of the main political theory texts in this tradition, to help acquire the texts (photocopies / e-versions / hard copies), to make summaries of a select number of texts, and to develop classroom assignments connected to the texts. Depending on the workload, the student may also be asked to assist in research activities related to political theory. The student will meet with the supervisor on a weekly basis.

 

In order to apply, the student should write a one-page essay explaining which tradition you want to focus on and why. The essay should also explain any previous coursework that you have done that is relevant to the internship. The deadline for the essay is two weeks before the AUC application deadline (November 19th for the Spring 2019 four-month period) and should be emailed to: e.cohendelara@auc.nl. Please also use this email for any questions that you may have about the internship.

Red Pers

Are you currently an AUC student with either academic or personal interest in journalism, (social) media, communication, entrepreneurship, writing, (digital) marketing and/or public relations?

Then Red Pers, an online journalistic platform founded by former AUC students, might be just perfect for you!

 

We are still looking for interns in a wide variety of fields and with different responsibilities. Especially in public relations (PR), we have quite some open vacancies at the moment. Are you going to be our next Content Creator or Creative Director? For a full overview of the internship possibilities and what they entail, please visit www.redpers.nl/join. Note that professional proficiency in Dutch is required for PR-positions (but other positions are available for English speakers as well!).

 

AUC students have proven to be a perfect internship match with Red Pers in the past: ask former AUC students Keeke van Paasen and Max van Geuns, as well as current students Rosa Juffer and Sophie Smeets, if you want to know more about their experience! However, do not hesitate too long, as the internship deadline (1 December) is approaching. If you are interested, please contact us at meedoen@redpers.nl or send one of us a PM on Facebook!
