Science in the City, Malta’s national science and arts festival is offering paid summer internships to interested applicants (bursary: a minimum of 3.5 months internship at €1,500 + €500 for travel fees for interns that need to move to Malta). This is a great opportunity for all tertiary-level students and anyone interested in developing their science communication skills.
We are looking for hard-working, motivated individuals who can work in an intense but highly rewarding environment. A background in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) subjects, communication/marketing-related, and design-related subjects are considered an asset. A good command of the English language is compulsory. Previous experience in similar roles is not essential but preferred.
Training will be focused on writing, editing, magazine production, evaluation, event organization and coordination, social media and website management. Limited training will be offered in photography, design or video production. Applicants who already have these skills will be preferred. Opportunities will also be available to be involved in other science communication activities, Think magazine, Malta Cafe Scientifique, CineXjenza, Varcities and SciCulture and other projects. All applicants must participate in Science in the City—European Researchers’ Night on the 29th and 30th of September. Many of these activities are led by the University of Malta.
This internship is supported by the Malta Chamber of Scientists and the Ministry for Research, Innovation, and the Coordination of the Post-COVID-19 Strategy.
A Maltese VAT number is necessary to be able to receive the bursary. Interns moving to Malta may apply for this once they have settled. We will assist you with the process.
