Internships

The Cyprus Interaction Lab (CIL) offers 3-4 internships per year in the areas of Lab’s research and projects.

The CIL internship program allows undergraduate and graduate students as well as recent graduates to gain valuable experience by getting involved with ongoing research activities of the Lab.  Also,  interns at CIL will actively participate in the organization of CIL events and workshops.

CIL internships last for a period of 2-6 months and are completed under the supervision of a Lab member.

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).
