CROP Internships

CROP Internships

Interns will have the opportunity to work in an international environment as part of CROP's administrative secretariat in Bergen.

​​​CROP student interns will learn about the various activities carried out by CROP and its academic network, and will gain valuable insight into contemporary poverty research through access to publications and participation in CROP events and meetings. They will also be able to participate in the wide range of public seminars and academic meetings offered at the Bergen Resource Centre for International Development.

  • Furthermore, eligible candidates must have excellent English language skills (spoken and written, at least CEFR Level C1); knowledge of other languages is an advantage.

Terms and conditions

Internships can be arranged throughout the year; the length of an internship may vary from a minimum of two months to a maximum of six months. Internships are unpaid; however, interns are reimbursed for monthly local transportation within Bergen. Interns are required to have health insurance and are responsible for arranging their own housing.

NB: Due to staff constraints during the summer, we are unable to offer internships between 1 July - 15 August.

Applications are accepted on a continuous basis, whereby we have three main evaluation dates: 15 February, 1 May and 1 November.
