2021-2022 Communications Internship


What We Do:

The Berggruen Institute was established in 2010 and works across cultures, disciplines, and political boundaries, engaging leading thinkers to develop and promote long-term answers to the biggest challenges of the 21st Century. The Institute hosts reports and activities within four main research themes:  The Transformation of the Human, The Future of Capitalism, The Future of Governance, and Globalization.

The Berggruen China Center is a hub for East-West, cross-cultural, and interdisciplinary research and dialogue on transformations affecting humanity. Intellectual themes are focused on frontier technologies and philosophy, frontier technology and society, and the transformation of governance. The Berggruen Institute has committed $22.5 million to the Berggruen Research Center at Peking University, which was launched in December 2018, and it includes a fellowship program and houses program activities such as closed-door roundtables and symposia alongside a host of other public events.

What you can get from working with the Center:

   - Opportunities to work closely with world leading researchers in the fields of artificial intelligence, biotechnology and ethics, as well as the architects of new international relations (IR) theory

   - A variety of team building activities for interns and staff and a team that supports your professional development

What we expect from you:

The internship program runs from summer 2021 to June 30, 2022. Interns are required to work for 10 hours per week, with each intern negotiating in-office time with her/his supervisor. The internship does not guarantee a paid job at the end of the program.
