IEEE History Center Life Member Internship, 2018

Deadline: March 01 2018

https://www.ieee.org/about/history_center/internship.html

Updated: October 30 2017

Scholars early in their career studying the history of electrical technology and computing are invited to contact the Center to be considered for a paid Internship at the Center's offices on the Stevens Institute of Technology campus in Hoboken, New Jersey, USA. The IEEE History Center, a center for the public history of technology, is cosponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE)—the world’s largest professional technical society—and Stevens Institute of Technology.

The intern program seeks to provide research experience for graduate students and other young scholars in the history of electrical and computer sciences and technologies and related fields, while enlisting the help of promising young scholars for the Center's projects. The Intern generally works full-time for two months at the History Center on a Center project that is connected to his or her own area of interest. This time is usually during the summer, but other arrangements will be considered. The stipend paid to the intern is US$5,000, but additional funds may be available to defray travel costs, depending on the intern’s circumstances. This internship is supported by the IEEE Life Members Committee, and the stipend was recently increased thanks to a generous gift from Emerson Pugh.

There is no formal application form. To apply, please mail curriculum vitae showing your studies in electrical history, a three- to five-page page (single or double spaced) writing sample, along with a cover letter describing the sort of project you would be interested in doing (see contact information below). The deadline for contacting the IEEE History Center is 1 March 2018. More details and contact information can be found at https://www.ieee.org/about/history_center/internship.html.
