Research internships

We welcome students who have recently obtained a BA degree, or are currently completing their MA studies. An internship position at the IES would be ideal for students from EU countries, who carrying out research for their MA thesis in a field close to the interests of IES research staff, or who are looking to investigate possibilities to further their research careers.

Interns are expected to work within a specific Cluster. In addition to carrying out research, interns are required to support academic staff in various tasks. For more information about the specific areas of research at the IES, please visit the research pages on our website: research

Interns will be provided with temporary use of the Institute's IT infrastructure (including  computer and access to the VUB digital library). 

Initial contact should be taken with Mrs. Anne Sterckx, Internship Coordinator. Candidates are invited to email their application 4 months before the potential start to with a current CV and the fully-completed form (.doc).

Duration of the placement is between 3 and 6 months. Please note that applications without the completed form and CV will not be considered and that there are no positions for internships during the Summer period of 2017.
