A small number of short-term unpaid internships are available throughout the year. We have filled our summer holiday internship positions however we will have positions available from last February 2015 on. If you would like to be considered for a position in 2015 please send in your CV and a cover letter and we will add you to the waiting list.
We select interns on three main criteria:
1. That the intern is studying in a field that we have a research interest in or that they are prepared to be involved in the project we offer them which may not be directly research oriented.
2. That a mentor within the CIS is available to work with the intern. We have found that the experience is less than satisfactory on both sides if there isn't a real project to be worked on and real support for the intern.
3. That you are available to work at our office in St Leonards, Sydney
Please send your CV and a cover letter explaining why you would like to intern at the CIS. We would also like to know your availability. For your information we have have interns who have worked with us for 12-14 weeks for 1 day a week and others who have worked 2-3 days a week over a shorter period of time in holiday periods.
