It is possible to negotiate other time slots upon request, especially to accomodate the different university terms in Europe and overseas. Please specify this in your application.
The internship positions are unpaid (ECMI is not in a position to cover travel or any other costs related to the internship) and usually last three months.
They will be based at ECMI headquarters in Flensburg or at the local offices in Tblisi, Pristina and Skopje.
You will participate in research and administration of ongoing ECMI projects, under the direction of the responsible ECMI researcher.
Depending on your profile, you can work in the following areas:
Your profile: Internships in ECMI's action-oriented projects are aimed at graduate or recent graduate students who have a particular interest in the Balkans, the Western CIS countries (Moldova / Ukraine) or the Caucasus.
We expect a certain flexibility and ability to assist with a variety of tasks based on the needs of the Centre or Regional Office at the time of the internship.
Activities: Your tasks may include conducting targeted background research, tracking media coverage, assisting in the organization of training events and contributing to general office support duties, including updating of databases.
There will of course be some overlap of duties, combining research and administrative tasks.
The working language of ECMI is English; for our Regional Offices, knowledge of local language skills is a plus but not a necessity.
The possibility of also undertaking independent research leading to a paper of publishable quality may be discussed on an individual basis.
If you wish to apply, please specify in your covering letter your availability and regional/functional area of interest.
