Call for LGI Research Interns Fall-Winter 2003-2004
LGI is currently accepting applications for its research internship
program. Interns will work on a voluntary basis at the LGI office
(located in the Budapest headquarters of the Open Society Institute) in
a diverse, challenging and exciting environment on various topics
related to local public policy development, decentralization, public
service reform, and multiethnic community management.
Interns will contribute to LGI research and publications and participate
in a variety of projects depending on the skills and knowledge of
selected applicants, addressing Eurasia and beyond. The internship cycle
will last for a period of six months. The next deadline for submitting
an application is December 20, 2003. The internship cycle will begin on
March 1, 2004 and last until August 31, 2004.
Interns must have excellent writing, research and communication skills
and must hold at least a BA degree (MA desirable) in an area related to
public policy or political science. Interns should be knowledgeable
about the Eastern European region, Southeastern Europe or Central Asia,
able to work independently and computer literate. Familiarity with
online research and a commitment to working in the region is a bonus. As
the official language of LGI/OSI is English, excellent English written
and oral skills are essential.
All applications should be submitted via email to Petra Kovacs at
and must include the following materials:
* Cover letter explaining the applicant's qualifications and motivation
in applying for the internship.
* The names and contact information (e-mail and telephone numbers) of
two references familiar with your academic or written work.
* An English language writing sample (e.g. publication or a chapter of a
relevant research study) no longer than 5 pages in length.
The deadline for applications for the Spring-Summer 2004 internship is
December 20, 2003. Shortlisted applicants will be notified by January
15 and will be interviewed between January 15 and 25, 2004. The selected
Research Intern will be expected to begin working in Budapest by March
LGI is seeking volunteers for its Research Internship program and is
therefore unable to provide compensation for its interns. Thus, LGI
encourages prospective applicants to seek outside sources of funding to
cover their expenses.
