IEEE History Center Life Member Internship for 2017

Deadline: March 01 2017

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

Updated: November 22 2016

Scholars near the beginning of their career studying the history of electrical technology and computing and related fields are invited to contact the Center to be considered for a paid Internship at the Center's offices on the campus of Stevens Institute of technology in Hoboken, New Jersey, USA.

The intern program seeks to provide research experience for young scholars (generally advance undergraduates or beginning graduate students) in the history of technology, while enlisting their help 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. Interns are also encouraged to consult with the Center's staff and its associates, and guided to research resources in the area. The stipend paid to the intern is US$5,000. This internship is supported by the IEEE Life Members Committee, and was recently enhanced by a gift from Emerson Pugh.

There is no formal application form. To apply, please email a curriculum vitae showing your studies in electrical history or related field, a three- to five-page page writing sample, and a cover letter describing the sort of project you would be interested in doing and why it would benefit from being conducted at the IEEE History Center. Complete information is available at http://www.ieee.org/about/history_center/internship.html.

The Center can be contacted at: IEEE History Center, S. C. Williams Library 350, 1 Castle Point Terrace, Hoboken, NJ 07030, ieee-history@ieee.org, +1 732 562 5450

IEEE and Stevens Institute of Technology are AA/EO employers. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply for all positions. The IEEE History Center 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 Innovation University (although the position is through IEEE). The mission of the Center is to preserve, research, and promote the legacy of electrical engineering and computing.
