Internship Opportunity at FeSTEM Project

Due to the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19), CIL will not host any internships for Summer 2020. A small number of virtual internships will be hosted i.e., the intern completes a project in distance with some online supervision meetings.  A certificate for a successful internship will be awarded by the Director of the Lab.

The Cyprus Interaction Lab (CIL) offers 3-4 internships per year. We are looking to award 1-2 internships under CIL’s FeSTEM Project (
The CIL internship program allows undergraduate and graduate students as well as recent graduates to gain research/work experience by getting involved with ongoing activities of the Lab.

CIL internships last for a period of 2-6 months and are completed under the supervision of a Lab member. FeSTEM Project internships will be supervised by Dr. Antigoni Parmaxi.

CIL internships are unpaid internships.

International applicants are encouraged to apply for external funding (e.g., Erasmus Student Mobility for Placements program that enables higher education students to spend 3 months in an organization in another participating country).
