Description

The Parapsychological Association is an international professional organization of scientists and scholars engaged in the study of psi (or 'psychic') experiences, such as telepathy, clairvoyance, psychokinesis, psychic healing, and precognition. The primary objective of the PA is to achieve a scientific understanding of these experiences.

First established in 1957, the PA has been an affiliated organization of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) since 1969. The PA is a non-profit, non-adjudicating organization that endorses no ideologies or beliefs other than the value of rigorous scientific and scholarly inquiry.

We are seeking an intern to help us develop our social media presence. We currently have accounts with Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, and YouTube, but feel that we could be doing more with them.

The ideal candidate would have an interest in a scientific study of parapsychology, be enthusiastic about supporting our mission, and have some background in a related academic discipline such as psychology, physics, or anthropology.

The internship can be undertaken remotely, or at our administrative offices in Columbus, Ohio.

- Drafting social media content as it relates to the PA's mission, publications, and fundraising activities
