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.
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.
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).
Applicants can apply for part time or full time internships during:
- Spring (mid Jan-mid May)
- Summer (June and July)
- Fall (mid Sept – Mid Dec)
Benefits – the Intern will:
- Gain hands-on experience with research projects as a member of lab.
- Learn to use the lab’s facilities and technologies.
- Have an office space and internet access.
- Receive an internship certificate after the completion of his/her internship.
- Internship projects can be expanded to a BA and MA/MSc thesis (in the case of students for the Cyprus University of Technology).
- Internships are a great opportunity for prospective PhD students to experience research life at CIL and explore directions for their PhD topic before committing to a PhD. In that respect, CIL internships give an opportunity for developing a PhD proposal.
- The Internship does not cover accommodation, living or travelling expenses.
- This is an unpaid internship.
