As part of it's work to strengthen, diversify, and develop academic appointments across the Smithsonian, the Smithsonian Office of Fellowships and Internships maintains a variety of communication channels including an active blog and weekly email newsletter.

This internship offers an opportunity for an intern to learn about how these channels are used to engage a variety of audiences interested in SI academic appointment opportunities. Specifically, based on content offered by OFI, the intern will be responsible for producing one blog post every week (1 post due every Monday).

Once this is mastered, interns may also have an opportunity to edit the weekly OFI Email Newsletter.
