Berkman Center for Internet & Society 2016 Summer Internship Program*
*Application deadline for all students for summer 2016 is Friday,
February 12, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. ET*
*Information about the summer program and links to the application
procedures can be found below and at **http://brk.mn/summer****

About the Program*
Each summer the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard
University swings open the doors of our vibrant yellow house to welcome
a group of talented and curious students as full-time interns -
Berkterns! <http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=berktern>-
who are passionate about the promise of the Internet. Finding connected
and complementary research inquiries among their diverse backgrounds,
students represent all levels of study, are being trained in disciplines
across the board, and come from universities all over the world to
tackle issues related to the core of Berkman?s research agenda. Summer
interns jump head first into the swirl of the Berkman universe, where
they are deeply and substantively involved in our research projects and
efforts.**

Becoming invaluable contributors to the Center?s operation and success,
interns conduct collaborative and independent research under the
guidance of Berkman staff, fellows, and faculty. Specific roles, tasks,
and experiences vary depending on Center needs and interns' skills; a
list of expected opportunities for Summer 2016 is on the Berkman summer
internship page
<http://harvard.us10.list-manage.com/track/click?u=ef13e6d75b74b1791f13115cd&id=ffd3194cd9&e=713200df58>.
Typically, the workload of each intern is primarily based under one
project or suite of projects, with encouragement and flexibility to get
involved in additional projects across the Center.

In addition to joining research teams, summer interns participate in
special lectures with Berkman Center faculty and fellows, engage each
other through community experiences like weekly interns discussion
hours, and attend Center-wide events and gatherings with members of the
wider Berkman community. As well, each year interns establish new
channels for fun and learning, such as organizing debates and pub
quizzes; establishing reading groups and book clubs; producing podcasts
and videos; and hosting potlucks, cook-offs, and BBQs (fortunately for
us, people share).

The word "awesome" has been thrown around to describe our internships,
but don't take our word for it.  Interns Royze Adolfo and Hilda Barasa
documented the summer 2012 internship experience here
<http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/berkmancentersummer2012/>.  Former intern
Zachary McCune had this to say: "it has been an enchanting summer
working at the berkman center for internet & society.  everyday, i get
to hang out with some of the most brilliant people on the planet. we
talk, we write (emails), we blog, we laugh, we play rock band. and when
things need to get done, we stay late hyped on free coffee and leftover
food. it is a distinct honor to be considered a peer among such
excellent people. and i am not just talking about the fellows, staff,
and faculty, though they are all outstanding. no, i mean my peers as in
my fellow interns, who are almost definitely the ripening next
generation of changemakers."*

Time Commitment*
Summer internships are full time positions (35 hours/week) for 10 weeks.
The Summer 2016 program will run from Monday, June 6 through Friday,
August 12.*

Payment*
Interns are paid $11.50 an hour, with the exception of certain
opportunities for law students who receive summer public interest funds
(more about these specific cases at the link for law students below).

No other benefits are provided, and interns must make their own housing,
insurance, and transportation arrangements.*

Commitment to Diversity*
The work and well-being of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at
Harvard University are strengthened profoundly by the diversity of our
network and our differences in background, culture, experience, national
origin, religion, sexual orientation, and much more. We actively seek
and welcome applications from people of color, women, the LGBTQIA
community, and persons with disabilities, as well as applications from
researchers and practitioners from across the spectrum of disciplines
and methods.

*Eligibility*

   * Internships are open to students enrolled across the full spectrum
     of disciplines.
   * Internships are open to students at different levels of academic
     study including those in bachelor?s, master?s, law, and Ph.D programs.
   * Summer interns do not need to be U.S. residents or in school in the

   * Summer interns do not need an existing affiliation with Harvard
     University.*****
