Description

The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) seeks a Communications (Media and Social Media) Intern to provide critical support in communicating innovative research on development issues related to food and agriculture, trade and economic development, and poverty, nutrition, and health. 

The successful candidate will help the media team spotlight and disseminate our best and most salient work through our social media channels, our blog, and our relationships with external news media outlets so that insightful research can inform meaningful policy changes that promote our vision of a world free from hunger and poverty. 

To achieve these goals, the intern will: draft dynamic content for our website and blog based on our most relevant research and events; generate ideas and content for social media campaigns across various social media platforms; identify journalists across the globe for IFPRI to engage with; regularly track and report on our media presence; and analyze web data to assess the success of specific strategies and campaigns. Excellent writing and analytical skills are a must, as well as an ability to translate academic content for a general audience. 

This is an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about international development, social policy, or how ideas and research can stimulate change. The internship will provide the successful candidate with invaluable insight into the strategic communications of a large nonprofit organization working across the globe, as well as with opportunities to create original content for global audiences.
