Conflict simulation, peacebuilding, and development

PAXsims is looking for volunteers/interns

PAXsims is looking for 2-3 interns to work with the project over the next few months. All work requires internet access, and can be done from your current location. Hours are flexible. Interns will receive exactly what the rest of us receive for working with PAXsims—that is to say, these positions are voluntary and completely unpaid. However, think how much you’ll impress your friends at geeky conflict-simulation-and-peacebuilding parties when you casually mention you are part of the PAXsims team!

Specifically, we are looking for three volunteers/interns:

Graphics design specialist

The graphics design intern will assist PAXsims graphics for the website, customization of AFTERSHOCK: A Humanitarian Crisis Game, and the development of graphics for other serious games. The intern should have a basic to intermediate understanding of Adobe InDesign, with knowledge of text wrapping, paragraph, object, and character styles being necessary, as well as familiarity with kerning, tracking and leading. The ideal candidate would already have access to InDesign CC (2015) and the Adobe TypeKit.

Spanish language translator

The translation intern will work with PAXsims and CECOPAC (Centro Conjunto para Operaciones de Paz de Chile) on the development of a Spanish-language version of AFTERSHOCK: A Humanitarian Crisis Game. Advanced word processing and page layout experience would be an asset.


The research intern will be responsible for identifying news and other items that might be of interest to PAXsims readers. Applicants should be well acquainted with (serious and not so serious) gaming and conflict simulation. Knowledge of conflict analysis, wargaming, humanitarian assistance, international development, international relations, and/or educational game development would be an asset too.

For further information please contact Rex Brynen (email only). Applicants should send a CV (and, if relevant to your qualifications, an unofficial university transcript) along with a statement of interest. Please put “PAXsims intern” in the subject line of all correspondence.

Deadline for applications: 21 August 2015.
