The Research Internship Market aims to connect young and future researchers together. It gives an opportunity for PhD candidates to post internship positions and look for an intern willing to help them with their research project. It also offers students (BA/MA) the possibility to find a research internship in the field of Life Science, Photon & Neutron and Social Science, and thereby gaining first–hand experience working on a research project.
Characteristics of the Research Internship Market
- No registration is needed.
- Open to all students and PhD candidates, enrolled at a High Education Institution in a country of the Baltic Sea Region (BSR), defined as a member of the Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS): Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Russia and the observer member Belarus.
- PhD students submit their offers, which will be made public at end of every month, until October 2021.
- List of internship offers within the BSR will be posted on the BSN webpage, in the fields of Life Science, Photon and Neutron Sciences, and Social Science.
- Every PhD host who submitted offers is responsible for processing the applications, select the applicants, and get in contact with them to arrange the terms of the internship.
