Internship at IRES

IRES is looking for interns who want to work with research administration and conduct their own research.

As intern, you will assist the administrative staff at IRES that works with research issues as well as with  the planning of seminars, workshops and conferences. If needed, you will assist researchers with editing and data collection. You are also expected to work on your own research, such as your upcoming thesis or writing your own articles relevant to IRES. You will be appointed a supervisor.

A small number of interns will be given this opportunity during the fall term and we accept applications during the spring term. We expect you to have a minimum of 2-3 years of university studies and be enrolled at a program at either Bachelor or Master's level.

The internship is unpaid. Please also note that the Institute can neither cover your travel expenses nor assist you with arranging accommodation.

Good knowledge of Swedish is a requirement.

Your application should include a brief resume, a time frame for your internship and a cover letter including answers to the following questions:

- What are your research interests?

- What experiences do you have that are relevant to your internship?

- Why do you think you are a good candidate for this internship?

Applications will be ranked according to IRES needs.
