The Office of the Historian at the Department of State is looking for web-savvy undergraduates and graduate students interested in the history of U.S. foreign relations and social media outreach. Successful candidates will perform research at the Office of the Historian website, https://history.state.gov, to locate important, timely, and interesting historical content and write social media posts about it. The work will mainly focus on reading telegrams, letters, meeting transcripts, and other historical documents in the Foreign Relations of the United States series, the official documentary historical record of major U.S. foreign policy decisions. The Office of the Historian engages on social media primarily through its account on twitter at https://twitter.com/HistoryAtState.
