Open to Stanford humanities doctoral students.
The literature team at Shmoop (www.shmoop.com) is excited to offer, in partnership with BiblioTech, two formal internships for Stanford Humanities PhD students. This will be a paid (yep, you read that right) 10-week summer gig. We're flexible with dates, as long as you're conscientious with your work.
You would be working 20 hours/week at the Shmoop headquarters in Mountain View, so if you have an aversion to Swedish Fish or wearing jeans to work, look elsewhere.
We're especially looking for people who are awesome at and familiar with at least one of the following things:
What we'd like from you:
What does it mean to be Shmoopy? It's all about being fun, engaging, relatable to teenagers—oh, and totally brilliant, too. To get a real feel for the voice, poke around our "In a Nutshell" and "Why Should I Care?" sections. One Hundred Years of Solitude (http://www.shmoop.com/one-hundred-years-solitude/) and Robinson Crusoe (http://www.shmoop.com/robinson-crusoe/) will do you well.
Application materials should be sent to Anaïs Saint-Jude (firstname.lastname@example.org) by April 15. Shmoop will contact you (yay or nay) about an interview before the end of April.
