Academic Internship

Date de clôture

UNU-IIGH offers internships to bachelors and graduate-level students or young professionals with a keen interest to gain more experience in global health. The internship programme is UNU-IIGH’s initiative to cultivate and advance a new generation of global health scholars and professionals to extend research, policy and practice by enabling them to develop necessary capabilities and skills, expertise and perspectives.

Work placement internship is also available to those who wish to gain programme support experience in a UN agency.

A customised internship programme is organised depending on the ongoing programmes and supervisory/ mentorship availability at UNU-IIGH, and the time commitment, background and career interests of the intern.

The end goal is to provide interns with relevant exposure, experience and perspectives on global health policy, practice, and research through hands-on guidance, experience and learning, to develop a career and professional future in global health.

Interns will get to:

– participate in holistic real-world global health research, policy and practice-oriented projects within an international research and training organisation;

– be introduced and exposed to the work, structure and mission of UNU-IIGH, UNU and other UN bodies;

– prepare for future roles in global health and obtain a competitive edge for career initiation in international academic institutions, national government health institutions and regulatory agencies, health-focused non-profit, non-governmental organisations;

– interact and network with UNU-IIGH academics, staff and stakeholders at various levels of appointment

Interns are recruited through a competitive application process with no fixed closing date.
