Job Description

The Association for Psychological Science (APS), a DC-based scientific organization, seeks highly motivated individuals for internship positions during the upcoming spring and fall semesters.

Located in Dupont Circle, APS is dedicated to the advancement and representation of scientific psychology across the full range of research areas in this diverse field. With over 33,000 members from around the world, APS membership includes the field’s leading scientists, academics, educators, and students. APS publishes six highly respected journals, hosts an annual US-based conference and biannual international conference, publishes the monthly Observer magazine, and has a broad public outreach program that raises the visibility of APS members, their research, and the psychological science field as a whole.

APS interns will be assigned to a team at APS from areas including Communications, Publications, Membership & Marketing, and Government Relations. They may have the opportunity to work in several areas during a semester. Assignment, hours, and schedule for interns will be established on an individual basis.

  • Reading APS journal articles and summarizing them for general audiences
  • Researching psychology programs and helping APS connect with members
  • Helping advance APS’s teaching and mentorship programs
  • Conducting market research to improve APS marketing efforts
  • Tracking US and international funders of psychological science research
  • Writing blog posts, social media blurbs, and other copy
