Calls For Summer Interns – CLOSED
Science in the City, Malta’s national science and arts festival, Think magazine, Malta Cafe Scientifique, CineXjenza, Varcities and SciCulture are offering paid internships to interested applicants (bursary: €1,500 for whole duration to cover rent and living expenses, + €500 travel fees for interns that need to move to Malta). This is a great opportunity for all tertiary-level students and others interested in developing their science communication skills, among others.
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, and a good command of the English language are considered an asset. Previous experience in similar roles is not essential but preferred. Training will be focused on writing, editing, magazine production, evaluation, event organisation 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 to work on other science communication activities, especially on EU projects will also be available. We make it a point not to interfere with student exams, resits or lectures by being as flexible as possible.
All applicants must participate in Science in the City—European Researchers’ Night on 30 September and 1 October. 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 Equality, Research and Innovation.
Restrictions of movement caused by the COVID-19 pandemic means that successful applicants will be kept updated with any developments. We will make the biggest effort to offer the best internships we can while prioritising everyone’s health.
