The iLab is CSIS’s internal creative and digital agency. We enhance the Center’s research and impact through the best of web development, video, imagery, audio, and design. The iLab partners with CSIS experts to create websites, interactive visuals, custom reports, graphics, videos, and podcasts that effectively communicate policy scholarship and recommendations to a global audience. It’s a dynamic, innovative, and fast-paced environment.

We currently have an two openings for a web developer (job description) and multimedia producer (job description).

  • The developer will work closely with the department and CSIS experts on creative digital projects, including dynamic data visualizations, interactive features, long-form media-rich digital reports, websites, and rich media packages. This is an ideal opportunity for someone with solid coding skills who is eager to bring complex policy issues to life using digital platforms and a drive to enhance their skill-set.
  • The multimedia producer will work closely with the department and CSIS experts on creative projects that tell compelling public policy stories and mentor students taking part in a practicum on modern journalism. This is an ideal opportunity for visual storytellers who are eager to bring complex policy issues to life across multiple platforms.

Additionally, we offer paid, full time, six-month internship opportunities on a rotating basis. One with a focus on design (graphic, print, and digital) and the second on multimedia/web (web, video, and audio). The internship start dates fall around January and June, and we usually announce the openings in mid-November and April respectively.
