The Carolina Center for Jewish Studies is accepting applications for paid, undergraduate and graduate student internships for the 2022-2023 academic year.
The Carolina Center for Jewish Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill unites the general public, students and faculty from various academic disciplines who share a common passion for a deeper understanding of Jewish history, culture and thought. In addition to overseeing an undergraduate RELI/JWST major and two minors, and a graduate certificate, the Center hosts numerous events each year, including seminars, lectures and film screenings. The Center also offers programming for faculty, grad students and undergraduates plus an extensive grants program. This academic year, the Center is celebrating its 20th anniversary.
Undergraduate Intern: The Center is seeking a Carolina undergraduate student to work during the upcoming academic year to help promote the Center’s activities and academic programs to undergraduates. We need an outgoing student who can attend campus events, visit classrooms to give brief presentations and create short videos and social media posts. In addition, the intern will assist with creating materials for our 20th anniversary celebration. Our undergraduate intern must be independent, reliable, creative and interested in promoting Jewish studies events, courses and the major/minors. The schedule is very flexible to accommodate class schedule, but the student must be available to attend some events and visit Jewish studies classrooms during the school year. The undergrad internship offers $14.00 per hour. The number of work hours will vary each week, but will average 2-4 hours per week, September 2022 through April 2023. This is a hybrid position but ideally the student will be available to attend our evening events, see our website for the schedule.

Prior experience with providing basic AV support for in-person events and assisting with logistics for remote Zoom events is required. Our graduate student intern must be independent, reliable and creative and interested in promoting Jewish studies programs. The schedule is very flexible to accommodate class schedule, but the student must be available to attend our evening events during the school year. The grad student internship offers $19.00 per hour. The number of work hours will vary each week but will average 2-4 hours per week, September 2022 through April 2023.

Lori and Eric ’80 Sklut, of Charlotte, NC, have generously underwritten the internship program, which was initiated in the 2016-2017 academic year. In past years, the interns created outreach materials for undergraduates, expanded the Center’s social media efforts, worked on events related to the Center’s 15th anniversary showcase and produced a new video for the Center.
