SIPRI is seeking one individual (Master’s student) to undertake a 10–20 week internship in SIPRI’s Peace and Development Programme with a focus on climate risks during the spring of 2019.

The internship will commence as soon as possible. The intern will support ongoing research by performing the following activities:

  • Support SIPRI’s researchers in the work on climate-related security risks and institutional responses, specifically by searching and compiling literature and empirical data.
  • Collect and structure information about post-conflict natural resource governance under supervision of SIPRI’s researchers in the Climate Change and Risk team.
  • Assist in the organisation of seminars and workshops about climate-related security risks.

SIPRI’s research in the Climate Change and Risk Program focuses on wide range of topics, therefore, there is the potential to explore a range of sub-issues.

An internship at SIPRI provides an opportunity to learn about the institute’s work. As an intern, you will have a supervisor within the research programme. SIPRI does not have a formal programme for interns or special funding for this purpose. As such, SIPRI cannot pay for housing, travel or any other expenses and cannot pay interns a salary. Please, indicate in your application that you are aware that the position is unpaid. The internship is located at SIPRI’s office in Solna, Sweden.
