Apply for an internship

CGM accepts and reviews internship applications continuously. We get many requests, but can only accept a few interns each semester, so apply as early as possible.

Important note: We cannot accept interns during the summer months (mid june to mid august) nor can we offer paid internships or help with accommodation. We do not have the capacity to supervise thesis.

We prioritize interships of 10 weeks of longer. Your internship can be full time or part time (minimum 50%), depending on your possibilities.

All our interns need to have the following general qualifications:

  • Fluency in oral and written English, Swedish-knowledge is an asset but not a requirement.
  • The ability to work independently and take own initiatives is crucial for having a worthwhile internship with CGM.
  • Interns should be studying, or have completed studies at master level, or have relevant work experience.

Contact us with questions or your application at, include your CV and letter of presentation/motivation (max 1 page) with your application.

If we think you might be suitable for an internship, we would like to meet you in person and discuss how we can best accommodate you at CGM.

You are welcome to contact CGM and eventually submit your application at the end of May 2021. At the moment, due to the pandemic, there are uncertainties about the possibility of getting interns for the Autumn 2021, but we are still hopeful to be able to have interns in Autumn 2021.

We are looking for interns who can help with the organisation of the seminar programme, conferences and the associated tasks. You are welcome to develop your own ideas for seminars, preferably targeted at students and the general public. Other tasks might be updating our migration research database and migration publications. More research oriented tasks are also possible. You can for example combine the internship with developing a thesis idea or the writing of your thesis within the area of migration or integration. The internship at CGM gives you the opportunity to develop your communication skills and get more experience in migration research area.
