Apply for Internships at ECIPE

The recruitment process for the internships starting in Fall 2018 is now closed.


Interns participate in all of the institute’s work and undergo a training programme that is designed after their future career interests. Interns assist ECIPE’s scholars with research programmes, conduct literature reviews, collect and analyse data, write draft reports and short contributions for the website (blog post format), assist in multiple project researches by collecting and synthesising the necessary information. Additionally they help with the organisation’s event management and support general administrative and organisational tasks. The ECIPE internships are remunerated and last for 6 months with a possible extension up to 1 year.


Candidates should have a Master’s degree in economics, international economics/trade economics, international political economy, or an equivalent discipline relevant for ECIPE’s research profile. Interns should have excellent analytical, writing and quantitative skills and be fluent in English. Interest in communications, digital policies and/or knowledge of econometric or statistical software (in particular STATA) is in asset.

We are particularly looking for candidates with an outstanding academic record and with a strong interest for a future career in academia, journalism, or policy making. Preference is given to candidates who have recently completed their Master’s degree. For non-economist applicants: good knowledge of economics and strong numerical skills, including MS Excel is compulsory.
