Internship at the GIGA Institute for Asian Studies

  • The GIGA Institute for Asian Studies (IAS) awards a limited number of internship places to students of social sciences and regional studies. We always endeavour to provide our interns with a broad overview of our activities at the IAS. Interns will also have the opportunity to author their own research article.

    It is possible to undertake an internship in either the field of research or the library. Those interested in an IAS internship should at least hold a BA in a relevant discipline.

    The internship is unpaid. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide interns with any financial remuneration. Intern must finance themselves throughout their internships and are responsible for arranging their own accommodation.

    Possible fields or work include, among other things, research assistance and the involvement in research projects (both in consultation with the relevant staff member.

    Your application should include an informal cover letter in English indicating your preferred start date and internship duration, a tabular CV, and your university transcripts. In addition, you should provide the names of two IAS researchers with whom you would most like to undertake your internship.
