Interdisciplinary internship at CGM and Thingstigate

Are you a Master student and interested in Migration- and Integration research as well as Artistic research? We offer a joint interdisciplinary internship at the Centre on Global Migration (CGM) and the ERC-funded project Thingstigate.

We accept students currently enrolled in a master’s program. We are looking for highly motivated, self-driven interns who are interested in migration- and integration research as well as artistic research. The working language is English. The internship is unpaid but students will receive academic credits.

This interdisciplinary internship will offer a dynamic experience where the intern will be engaging in various tasks at both CGM and within the project Thingstigate at HDK-Valand.

Examples of tasks:

  • Assist in coordinating and facilitating workshops and seminars
  • Assist within various research projects with e.g. literature reviews
  • Assist in participatory art sessions and public workshops
  • Assist in web-based work
  • Simple administrative tasks

The intern will be physically located with Thingstigate at HDK-Valand and be co-supervised by senior staff from both HDK-Valand and CGM.

During the internship the student will develop academic as well we organizational skills, get an insight into academic work in practice, build an academic network, and attain knowledge on migration related topics and artistic research, in particular the connection between art-migration. The intern will also have the opportunity to participate in research seminars and other activities organized by CGM, HDK-Valand and by other departments at the University.

We are currently looking for interns for Autumn 2024
