About the Internship
The Australia Institute is starting a new high level, 12-month paid internship. The internship is a unique opportunity to provide young economists, political scientists or other researchers, at the beginning of their career, with on-the-job training within the most effective think tank in Australia.
Participants will be rotated through a number of senior mentors covering research, communications, and political, community and stakeholder engagement.
The purpose of this internship is to equip future leaders with the skills and experience to create progressive change.
The paid position is for a fixed term of 12 months, ideally full-time, though this can be flexible to accommodate study. We can also offer up to $1000 to assist with the cost of moving to Canberra from interstate.
This is a position for people beginning their career or those wishing to expand their skills and experience in either research, communications or political and community engagement.
We expect that at the end of 12 months, interns will leave The Australia Institute with the skills, knowledge and experience to move into positions within the NGO sector, public service or Parliament.
The internship provides training and mentoring in key aspects of ensuring the Institute’s research has real impact: research, communications, community, political and stakeholder engagement.
