Internships

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).
