Candidates should have the following qualifications:
- An educational background with a strong focus on Chinese foreign and security policies (Chinese Studies, Sinology, Political Science, International Relations or similar)
- Working-level Chinese language skills, preferably based on a longer-term stay in China or Taiwan
- Experience in conducting Internet research and working with Chinese-language materials
Interns will have the opportunity to work with a dynamic team and have the opportunity to provide your own input and ideas. Interns should also use their time at SIPRI to conduct some independent research work, for example on an M.A. thesis. If possible, the interns’ research topics should overlap with the China and Global Security Programme's research areas.
SIPRI does not have a formal programme for interns or special funding for this purpose. SIPRI can therefore not pay for housing, travel or any other expenses and does not pay interns a salary. Applicants should indicate in their applications that they can provide their own funding to cover all their costs in Sweden. Potential candidates are invited to email their application to Oliver Bräuner (email@example.com ) or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The application should include information on the applicant’s academic background, current study programme, special research interests, the period of time he or she would like to spend at SIPRI, a complete curriculum vitae, and information on the source of funding for a stay at SIPRI.
