Internships at IMES are already taken until April 2020. Please note that these are two-month internships (January/February, March/April, etc.), and you can only apply for these periods.
The GIGA Institute of Middle East Studies (IMES) focuses on current socio-political developments in the area between North Africa and the Middle East. Within this framework, the institute regularly offers a limited number of internships to students of regional studies and social sciences, which can be undertaken during the academic semester or during the semester break. Through our internships we aim to provide students with the best possible insights into the scientific work and decision-making structures of our institute. The specific arrangement of each internship will be primarily determined by the institute’s current workload and the student’s respective qualifications and interests.
Our internships are 8 weeks long and free of charge. Unfortunately, the institute cannot offer any financial remuneration to interns. Our interns are expected to finance their internships themselves and to also arrange their own accommodation in Hamburg for the duration of their internships.
Written applications must be submitted in English no later than four months before the desired internship start date and should include:
