Parallel Networks is looking for interns

At PN we're developing an online and offline portal that seeks to connect influencers worldwide, though we are currently focusing on engaging those in English-speaking countries in an effort to combat polarization, hate and extremism.

We offer a unique blend of theoretical and ideological expertise, as well as experiential knowledge from a former jihadi and a counter-terrorism expert.

We're looking for motivated interns to help us expand our social media outreach. If you're looking to learn how to combat violent extremism in a holistic manner, while learning how to synthesize that expertise with network science, see below!
