CROP Internships

CROP Internships

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

Thank you for your interest in the Comparative Research Programme on Poverty at the University of Bergen. 

We are very sorry to inform you that the CROP Secretariat is currently not able to offer internships. CROP is undergoing changes in its organisational structure, which means that we cannot accept internship applications until further notice. This situation is unfortunately beyond our control.

Our apologies and best regards from the CROP Secretariat.​​​​

BERGEN, 2 April 2019


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.

CROP invites prospective interns to apply to the CROP Secretariat at the University of Bergen. Applicants are selected and appointed by the Scientific Director on a competitive basis.

  • Applicants must have a relevant educational background (e.g. Social Studies, Development Studies, Political Science, International Relations)
  • Furthermore, eligible candidates must have excellent English language skills (spoken and written, at least CEFR Level C1); knowledge of other languages is an advantage.

Tasks vary according to the needs and ongoing projects of CROP; typically they include the following:

  • carrying out general administrative tasks
  • creating content for social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube)
  • organising and attending meetings, workshops or conferences

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.


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