Position announcement: Internships

Répertoire International de Littérature Musicale (RILM) is offering unpaid intern positions for writing English-language abstracts for publications in different languages and for assisting with day-to-day tasks in RILM’s International Office in New York. These interns will share a unique opportunity to enrich their familiarity with cutting-edge research technology and developments in musicology and related disciplines.

Interns will learn RILM’s editorial style and apply it to writing English abstracts, many of which are not in English. Those unable to visit our office and prefer long-distance internships must be affiliated with a library that provides access to the necessary materials, either through its collection or through Interlibrary Loan. Depending on background and interest resident interns will assist with the various technical tasks that pertain to RILM’s newest resources RILM Music Encyclopedias (RME) and RILM abstracts of music literature with full text.

Those interested in resident or long-distance internships should send a brief cover letter and C.V., highlighting language expertise, technology expertise, and areas of interest to Tina Frühauf (
