Through the year- round Internship Program, The Cyprus Institute Graduate School aims to expose young talented students and scholars to an international research experience and to encourage and inspire them in the pursuit of a scientific career. Interns will have a unique opportunity to carry out research at the institute's state-of-the-art facilities supervised by a mentor and to be introduced to the use of the latest methods and techniques.
During the application process, students will have to suggest a project of interest. Students must note that this will be considered, provided that the institute has the capacity in terms of supervision and facilities to accommodate the proposed project.
Applications are welcome from candidates worldwide with a keen interest and a relevant scientific background.
Students who are accepted to the program will be assigned to one project.
All applicants will be asked to justify what topic they want their internship to be on in a 300-word statement on the online application form.
Please note that if some of the projects may need to be offered remotely due to the developments related to the pandemic, there may be some additional background requirements that will be discussed with the mentor.
The internships typically last up to 6 months but this can be flexible.
Be undergraduate or graduate students or recent graduates with an excellent academic background and a strong interest in research (prior experience is considered an advantage)
Have strong communication and interpersonal skills and the ability to adapt to a multicultural/multinational environment
Have good knowledge of oral and written English
Applications should be submitted through the online internship application. The following supporting documents must be uploaded when filling out the online application:

This may either be a letter from the student’s university verifying that their degree program is offered in English, or if the degree is not offered at an English- medium institution, students should provide a certificate verifying English language proficiency (e.g. TOEFL, IELTS, GCSE/IGCSE etc.). If applicants have not taken any tests demonstrating English language proficiency and have not studied/ are not studying at an English-medium institution, they may state it on the application.
