The United Nations University Institute on Comparative Regional Integration Studies (UNU-CRIS) offers students with a demonstrated interest and background in regional integration studies the opportunity to take part in the activities of the Institute. Traineeships and Internships are respectively intended for undergraduate and graduate students.
Bachelor’s degree students and holders of a bachelor’s degree should apply to the Traineeship Programme.
Master’s degree students and holders of a master’s degree may apply to the Internship Programme.
The duties of UNU-CRIS Trainees involve updating of the Regional Integration Knowledge System (RIKS) database and other research tasks related to the Monitoring and Assessing Regional Integration research programme.
The duties of UNU-CRIS Interns involve research tasks related to the research programme of interest, based on the needs of the supervisor and on the ongoing projects and research activities at the time of the internship.
Both trainees and interns will assist in administrative and other tasks, as needed, and present the work performed during their research stay at a UNU-CRIS research brunch. Trainees and interns are welcome to take part in seminars, workshops, conferences and other events organized by UNU-CRIS, including informal briefings and roundtable discussions.
The next deadline for applications is 11 May 2014.
