*Call for Jihadology Research Intern*

Since last fall, I have been toying with the idea of starting a podcast for Jihadology and have had some discussions with a few people about potential ideas, themes, and plans. I have finally decided to pull the trigger and move this idea forward, but to do it I need help since I am already busy with a number of responsibilities. With that, I would need a research intern that is a native or fluent English reader and speaker as well as can read and listen to Arabic as a native, fluently, or professionally proficient. Preferably the candidate would be an undergraduate student, graduate student, or recently graduated. This would be an excellent opportunity for someone to get to know the Sunni jihadi primary source material as well as the secondary literature within the field generally speaking, among other things.

If you are interested or want more information, please email intern@jihadology.net. Thank you.

I look forward to hopefully starting this podcast within the next month.

*UPDATE: Based on feedback on Twitter and some more thinking on my part, here is an updated version of the original chart kept below so people can compare. Unless there is some large-scale breaking news, I’ll likely now update this every month or two.

My attempt to visualize where things are currently. Will periodically update, but I mainly posted this so as to get feedback since it is a fluid situation and some might have more local insight on particular groups/areas than me.
