Penn State University Press seeks a bright, energetic intern to assist our journals production department. The candidate will provide support for two production assistants as they guide manuscripts through the publication process from receipt of accepted articles through print and online publication. Responsibilities may include processing and preparing manuscripts, assessing copyediting, checking proof corrections, verifying image quality, reviewing online editions, as well as basic file management and data entry. This is a demanding but exciting job at a scholarly press with a wide range of journals in history, philosophy, language, communication studies, religious studies, and the social sciences. Candidates should have a strong interest in publishing as a career, but do not need to be English majors. Excellent oral and written communication skills and good organizational abilities are essential. Interns must possess the ability to interact effectively with individuals from a variety of cultures and backgrounds. The internship is being offered for spring and summer 2020. All internship candidates must be available to commit to the full term of the Internship. We ask that interns commit to working 15–20 hours per week within the hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
