Organization and Role Background:
The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit research and educational organization that develops medical, legal, and cultural contexts for people to benefit from the careful uses of psychedelics and marijuana. Research indicates that psychedelics have the potential to be a breakthrough in treating PTSD, depression, addiction, and other conditions.
MAPS has worked for over 35 years toward paving the way for education and legalization of such breakthrough medicines. MAPS is committed to bringing these healing modalities to the world and providing them in such a way that communities that most need mental health resources have access to them. This shift has the potential to unlock previously unavailable resources for the investigation of psychedelic-assisted treatments applied to our most critical mental health challenges.
Reporting to the Strategy and Partnerships Officer, the Organizational Health Intern will support the design and development of an organizational health plan. This work will involve research of best practices, interviews with experts, as well as focus groups and interviews with internal stakeholders. The Organizational Health Intern may also support and/or lead other initiatives within the domains of strategy and organizational development.
The Organizational Health Intern must be a highly organized problem-solver who enjoys working within a small entrepreneurial environment that is mission-driven, results-driven, and research-oriented. This position will offer the chosen applicant the opportunity to learn about organizational health and culture in the rapidly growing field of psychedelic medicine.
