Emily Bleimund, Senior Policy Advisor at the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Global Affairs (300 C Street, SW), is seeking a summer intern to assist with projects relating to the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP), the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Agreement (TTIP), Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), and various other issues involving the intersection of public health and international trade.  A strong interest, and preferably some background, in public health issues is preferred, as well as background education in international trade law and policy.  Many of the projects deal with highly sensitive confidential information, for which a security clearance is needed, therefore the intern will not have access to all materials, but will be critical in providing necessary background research and other preparation for meetings and negotiations on these issues.  The position is unpaid and does not require U.S. citizenship.  Please forward a cover letter and resume to Emily at emily.bleimund at hhs.gov.  Consideration of applications will begin immediately.
