Opportunities at NARP

Internship in North American Affairs
The North American Research Partnership (NARP) is an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit think-tank that conducts applied research on how the United States, Mexico and Canada can better position themselves for success in the 21st century. NARP places particular emphasis on trade and how communities and regions—particularly those in the relatively poor U.S.-Mexico border region—can effectively utilize the forces of globalization to their greatest advantage. NARP works on a broad range of interrelated international policy topics that intersect with trade including energy, sustainability, security, and education. NARP organizes its applied work through reports, white papers, strategic policy events, technical evaluations, legislative testimony and ongoing outreach to the public and private sectors as well as the news media. We work on projects with a number of entities, including federal, state and city government agencies, economic development agencies, non-profit organizations, educational institutions, chambers of commerce, and related organizations.

We are currently seeking interns to assist with a variety of research, administrative, and outreach tasks. Sample tasks include performing research on any one or a combination of our research projects; writing material for our website and other communications materials; and/or assisting with events and other operational logistics. The ideal candidate would have a demonstrated interest in international/cross-border affairs and be available for at least an entire summer or academic year between 5-15 hours weekly. Bilingual English/Spanish or English/French is encouraged. The position is unpaid and is based in the Central/Southern Arizona region.
