JapanLab Spring 2023 Internship

I wanted to bring your attention to an opportunity for any undergraduate students you know who are interested in Digital Humanities. The JapanLab, a joint project between the History and Asian Studies department, is recruiting students for three teams for Spring Semester 2023. As part of these teams, students will get first-hand experience creating digital humanities resources, including educational games and historically-accurate 3D models. They will also be eligible to receive 3 credit hours through the COLA internship program. No prior knowledge of computer science or Japanese language/history is necessary, though experience in either of those areas will be considered beneficial. We’re looking to recruit widely, so if you could forward the following to any students you know who might be interested, we would be very grateful! Applications are due on Nov. 12th, and we’ll reach out for interviews shortly thereafter. I’m happy to answer any questions that you or your students may have about this opportunity.

JapanLab, recruitment for Fall 2023

Fascinated by history? Love video games? Here’s your chance!

JapanLab is looking to recruit interns for Spring 2023 to develop three interactive history games: a virtual re-creation of a bustling port using state-of-the-art 3D modeling, digitized board games (sugoroku) to understand the people of the Japanese Empire, and a visual novel about the machinations that led to medieval Japan’s sixty-year civil war

JapanLab seeks to recruit around 12 students for projects starting in Spring 2023. The projects can be seen here (as well as in the attached poster):

EcoEvo Internship

A new environmental non-profit is looking to hire college students to create and build a collegiate network for their organization. This is a paid internship position!

Who is EcoEvo?

The idea of EcoEvo started with the creation of a non-profit focused on providing tree seeds to its partner companies and tackling deforestation head on. Our team has never been one to take the back seat to addressing issues. While there are certainly a lot of groups focused on this, we don’t think there can be too many. As we began flushing out the idea further, we realized two things:

  1. There is a generation of people (namely college age) who are highly motivated to take on climate change. They are also looking for ways to better tell their own stories of activation. By creating a network of colleges and college students, we solve the question of who is going to grow and “be” EcoEvo.
  2. While there is a lot of information on environmental waste and potential things we can all do, it was taking an incredible amount of digging to find the information and often it was too complex and not ready for the masses. So we set out to work with top thought leaders and professors to help us assemble great content that was actionable. We believe making things simple will lead people to embrace taking steps.

About EcoEvo:

EcoEvo, a 501c3 non-profit, was created to provide an onramp for partner companies to take proactive steps to address climate change through the replenishment of natural habitats.  The organization embraces a “roll up your sleeves” approach to tackling this issue through a three-pillar approach.

  1. Partner Organizations: With donations being made to EcoEvo, partner companies will receive seed packets to engage their internal teams and external customers to actively take part in planting sessions to curb the effects of climate change and to bring back the natural beauty of habitats.
  2. Collegiate Network: Build out of a nationwide network of college students to take part both in planting sessions within their community and ultimately running the organization.  The goal is to cultivate environmentally friendly behaviors early and provide an opportunity for students to gain critical experience running and growing an organization.
  3. Simple Dailies: The creation of a database leveraging thought leaders expertise in environmental issues into actionable steps which all people can embrace.


  • Assisting in the day to day operation of the EcoEvo.
  • Build out of additional content for the site.
  • Derivation of “Simple Dailies” a database of steps that everyday people can do to reduce their impact on the planet.
  • Assistance in finding partner organizations to engage with EcoEvo.
  • Buildout of social and communication
  • Assistance in identifying tree and flower seeds for specific US regions

Number of Interns: Depending on the number of hours that students are available we are looking for 1-2 individuals.

Compensation: $15/hr   As we won’t have any direct employees everyone will be 1099.


  • A highly referenceable and impressive work history
  • Ability to illustrate skills of running and operating a non-profit
  • Direct connection to sustainability and environmental efforts
  • Build out of relationships with partner organizations and other like-minded college students across the US


Apply: Interested individuals should send statement of interest and background with resume to Kevin Brodwick

TexPIRG Remote and In Person Internships

Sign up to find out more about the Student PIRGs remote and in-person internships. 

The Student PIRGs are an organization that trains students to run strategic campaigns. We have remote and in person internships and volunteer opportunities where students can learn valuable organizing and activist skills to make a difference on issues that they care about on their campuses. This semester we’re working on America’s plastic problem, food and housing insecurity on and off campus, getting the campus vote ready for the 2022 midterms, making Austin a more pollinator friendly city, and more! Learn more about our internships here. 

Colleges and Universities offer great classes to learn about all of these problems, and the impacts they have on our country and communities. However, it’s often hard to know how you can put that knowledge into action. That’s where we come in. TEXPIRG Campus Action is based on a model that has been helping students make positive change for almost 50 years. 

Across the country, our campus clubs have come together in big ways: 

·  We helped register hundreds of thousands of students to vote and increased early voting in the 2020 election.

·  Throughout the US we’ve gotten hundreds of professors to pledge to keep affordability in mind when they assign their course materials. And we’ve saved students over $40,000,000 by working with dozens of campuses in 10 states to create open source textbook programs.

·  And, more than 12 campuses across the country have already pledged to eliminate unnecessary single use plastics. 

As an intern you will spend 10-15 hours a week attending trainings, recruiting volunteers, and working on projects and campaigns that will make your community better. You’ll attend weekly trainings and run campaign events.
