Europaeum Internships

The Europaeum is looking for new interns from the new year. Internships for graduate students are now widely recognised as a key ingredient for students entering the job market, according to articles in the University World News. The Europaeum has proudly offered lively supported internships to graduate students, doctoral candidates and post-doctoral scholars from Europaeum universities for many years now. We are committed to providing engaging and fruitful work experience - with opportunities to pursue private research in Oxford libraries, attend select lectures, and travel in the UK. In this way, we seek to extend the mission of the Europaeum to build European leadership, foster diversity and provide opportunities to supplement research and background education. We offer internships for two to three months, and each intern will be asked to support general office work, work on current events and will be given a relevant research project to work on and help to develop.

Graduate Fellowship Programme : Challenging Humanity to act on Climate Change

Project Drawdown, is an innovative new climate change mitigation coalition.

This programme is designed to foster the development of a new generation of global leaders working on pragmatic solutions to our climate crisis. These students,scientists, entrepreneurs, and policymakers will learn how to describe a realistic future in which the world achieves drawdown - the point at which greenhouse gases in our atmosphere reach their modern day peak and then begin to decline. Fellows will work remotely with Project Drawdown’s research team to develop realistic, solution-specific models, reports, and policy memos projecting the financial and climate impacts of ‘state-of-the-shelf’ solutions deployed at scale over the next thirty years.
A small number of competitive, 10-week fellowships are available to exceptional postgraduates, postdoctoral scholars, and young professionals from around the world. To learn more about the fellowships and how to apply, please click here or click here for more information.
