      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.

      Qualifications:
      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.

      Application Process:
      All applications should be submitted via email to Petra Kovacs at
      kovacsp@... and must include the following materials:
      * Resume
      * 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
      1, 2004.
      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.

      Kovacs at kovacsp@...
