Petrie-Flom Center, Harvard Law School

Petrie-Flom Center Student Internship Program
Call for Applications

General information

The Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics at Harvard Law School is seeking student interns for the Fall 2018 semester. Availability to start immediately is preferred; please indicate your availability in your application materials. We may consider extension into Spring 2019 if there is mutual interest.

Who is eligible? 

Harvard undergraduate and graduate students with an interest in the Center’s work are eligible to apply. More information about the Center is available at our website. The internship is open to students in all disciplines, but we particularly welcome applications from students studying health policy, bioethics, law, medicine, and the sciences. We are especially interested in receiving applications from students who have experience with social media and/or digital communications.

What will the internship entail?

The Petrie-Flom Center is a busy research center that hosts a variety of events and supports the research work of several senior fellows, research fellows, and visiting scholars. Occasionally, work will need to be assigned and completed on a short turn-around time. Interns must be able to work to deadline with minimal supervision in a fast-paced office environment.

PFC Student Interns will support the Center primarily through communications and office work. Under the supervision of the senior staff, interns will assist with various projects, including:

  • Assistance with event coordination, marketing, and preparation;

  • Drafting of bi-weekly email newsletter using Constant Contact;

  • Website maintenance and content development, including identification of key topical resources for those interested in the field, career-related resources, and relevant programs, centers, courses, etc. around Harvard and beyond;

  • Blog maintenance at Bill of Health, and possibly drafting substantive posts;

  • Support of social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and other platforms using Hootsuite.

Interns are encouraged but not required to attend Center events, which are listed on the website. (Note that events will be added throughout the year.) Unless agreed upon in advance as a work assignment, students will not be paid for hours spent at Center events.

Interns will be paid commensurate with their experience and assigned duties. 

Hours may vary week to week depending on the Center’s needs, but applicants for Fall 2018 should expect to work 5–10 hours per week.

Please note that the student internship is distinct from the Petrie-Flom Center Student Fellowship Program, which entails enrollment in the Health Law, Policy, Bioethics, and Biotechnology Workshop, participation in Center events, and the completion of a piece of independent scholarship. The Student Fellowship, in contrast to the internship, is open only to Harvard graduate students.

How to Apply

To apply to the Petrie-Flom Center Student Internship Program, please submit the following materials:

  1. Resume or curriculum vitae;

  2. Academic transcript (unofficial is fine);

  3. Statement of interest and relevant background (two or three paragraphs; please indicate if you have particular expertise or experience related to the tasks described above, as well as if you are available for the full year or only one semester);

  4. Optional: Links to published blog posts, or a short writing sample (5 pages or less).

  5. Optional: Links to social media accounts you have previously managed and any digital projects.

Materials should be submitted to petrie-flom@law.harvard.edu.

Please contact Cristine Hutchison-Jones, Administrative Director, chutchisonjones@law.harvard.edu, with any questions.
