Markle Initiative for America’s Economic Future in a Networked World

Research Intern (PAID), Markle Initiative for America’s Economic Future in a Networked World, NYC

REPORT: Director

The Organization and New Economic Security Initiative

The Markle Foundation (www.markle.org) works to realize the potential of information technology to address intractable public problems, for the health and security of all Americans.

Founded in 1927 by John and Mary Markle, the Foundation has always been true to the mandate that it “promote the advancement and diffusion of knowledge among the people of the United States, and promote the general good of mankind.” Foundation policy is governed by an eight-member Board of Directors drawn from national security, health care, business and technology.  Headquartered in New York, with staff in various locations around the country, the Foundation has current assets of about $150 million.

The Markle Initiative for America’s Economic Future in a Networked World was created in 2013 to broaden the benefits of advances in information technology to create a vibrant economic future for all Americans. The goals of the Initiative are to envision and ultimately be a catalyst for an America with broad participation in the global digital economy; and to seek scalable solutions to reinvigorate the American Dream, imagining new strategies for jobs and economic security that can help propel our country into a future where the next generation will once again be better off than the last. The Initiative Members are leaders drawn from the fields of economics, technology, private sector, academia, and policymaking and have come together to drive this effort.

Much of what the Foundation does finds its primary public audiences in Washington. Its work products come in many forms – discussions with policy makers, education of interested sectors, written reports, multimedia and interactive presentations, briefings, public events, articles, and summary briefs.  The Foundation does not lobby. It provides public education, technical assistance, decision support analysis, and constructive interaction with government officials and their staffs, as well as interested private organizations and individuals and the media. With the new Initiative, it is likely that the primary audience will also extend beyond Washington, with private sector technology and other industries playing a critical role, as well as public and private efforts at the local and regional levels.

Job Responsibilities

The internship will provide an opportunity for engagement in research, editing, writing, and other research tasks related to the Markle Economic Security Initiative. Reporting to the Director and working in collaboration with the Economic Security team, responsibilities may include:

  • Conducting various research projects on a range of topics related to technology, economics, labor trends, and international trade;
  • Drafting internal papers on select topic areas;
  • Providing updates on research and statistics;
  • Mapping relevant literature;
  • Fact-checking;
  • Being accountable for timely and high-quality completion of assigned projects; and
  • Undertaking other projects as assigned.

Preferred Qualifications

Applicants for this position must be a current student pursuing a Bachelors or Master’s Degree with a demonstrated interest in technology, communications, law, or economics. He or she should have familiarity with internet research tools and an interest in new ways of presenting information. Applicants must have excellent writing abilities, research skills, and analytic capabilities, as well as strong verbal communication skills. Applicants should be able to capture complex issues in accessible documents for varied audiences. Applicants must also have an attention to detail and be able to work independently and as part of a collaborative, fast-paced, team-oriented environment.

To Apply

Interested applicants should send a resume, cover letter (including days and times available to work), one 3-5 page writing sample, and the contact information of two references to Internship2013@markle.org ASAP (note deadline extension!). Due to the volume of submissions, only shortlisted candidates will be contacted. The Markle Foundation is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

Announcing CUNY Service Corps!

This is a fantastic opportunity for City Tech students. It’s a CUNY program that’s not CUNY-wide–instead, it’s only open to students at seven of the CUNY colleges. Through CUNY Service Corps, students can get paid for interesting service-project internships throughout the city. There will be information sessions about the program, including one today at 1:00pm and another at 5:00pm, both in N119.

You can join the CUNY Service Corps project on the OpenLab to get further updates and ask questions. Here’s how they describe the opportunity:

The CUNY Service Corps will mobilize CUNY students, faculty and staff to work on projects that improve the short and long-term civic, economic and environmental sustainability of New York City and of its residents and communities. The program’s goals are three-fold: for students to make a meaningful difference through service while gaining valuable real-world work experience, earning a wage, and where appropriate, receiving college credit; for faculty members and staff, through their work with students in the program, to have additional opportunities to apply their expertise to addressing many of the city’s key challenges; and for residents, communities, and project sponsors to realize concrete benefits as a result of CUNY Service Corps projects.

The Service Corps is organized around themes that represent both opportunity and need:

A Healthier City: Corps members will address important community and public health issues, such as chronic disease management, childhood obesity, lead poisoning prevention, infant mortality, violence prevention, nutrition, and food security.

A More Resilient and Greener City: Students will support projects related to improving the city’s built and green infrastructure and making it more resistant to storm-related damage.

A Better Educated City: The Corps will offer valuable supports to students of all ages, such as those in early childhood programs (and their families and caretakers), public middle and high school students, fellow CUNY students struggling with academic and personal challenges, and adult students learning English or preparing to take the High School Equivalency examination.

An Economically Stronger City: A range of projects will focus on bolstering the economic viability and success of distressed communities within the city.

By providing on-the-ground support to a wide range of non-profit and civic endeavors, the CUNY Service Corps will both increase the availability of valuable services to New Yorkers and enable CUNY students to become more engaged in their communities throughout the city. Service Corps members will become part of a University cohort of students practicing service that is aligned with their civic and professional goals. Typical assignments will last twenty-four weeks over two semesters. Participants will work an average of 12 hours per week. Corps members will be paid for these hours, and in some instances earn college credit.
