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 the option to either:
(1) select one project from the table below or
(2) suggest a project of interest*
*students who propose their own suggested project must note that this will be considered, provided that the institute has the capacity in terms of supervision and facilities
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.
Some of the projects may be offered remotely.
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:
Copy of national ID or passport
University transcripts. All transcripts to date should be included.
English Language Proficiency Certificate. 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.
