Internship Programme

September-December 2010

General Conditions

From September to December 2010, the European Union Institute for Security Studies (EUISS) is providing a limited number of internships to candidates who have or are about to obtain their first degree, as well as to young researchers from universities or research institutes.

The main task of interns will be to assist the research team under the supervision of the Research Fellow responsible for the programme. Certain administrative tasks may also be entrusted to interns, although they will not entail more than 15% of the time they spend at the Institute.

Internships will run for two months during the period September to December 2010. Candidates are kindly requested to state their choice of date (Sept/Oct or Nov/Dec) in the application form.

Candidates should have a good knowledge of at least one of the Institute's working languages (French and English).

Interns will receive a symbolic stipend of 450 €uros, and lunch vouchers for meals at the Institute’s restaurant. Interns are entitled to one day of leave per month plus French feast days and public holidays. They are expected to be present at the Institute during normal working hours, although justified absences may be authorised by their supervisor and the programme coordinator upon request. 

The Institute does not provide health insurance to interns, who should ensure they are covered by their student medical insurance during their stay in France and provide proof that they have done so upon arrival at the Institute.

The Institute regrets that it cannot pay for travel expenses or accommodation nor can it assist in assisting interns in finding accommodation in Paris.

The closing date for applications is 28 May 2010.

Applications should include:

  • a completed application form;
  • a brief CV;
  • a covering letter, outlining the reasons for the candidate’s interest in the Institute’s internship programme;
  • dates of availability (between September and December).

Completed applications should be sent via e-mail to Marie Antonini no later than 28 May 2010.

Decisions will be communicated to the candidates on 15 June 2010.

For internships in the first half of 2011, a new application period will open in autumn 2010.
