Within the frameworks of the “Media & Diversity” research project of Culture and Diversity cluster, ECMI offers additional places in the non-resident internship programme aiming at finding qualified volunteers to support the ECMI research team over the period November 2014 – March 2015. Deadline: 01 November 2014.
Since not all media outlets have online versions and some of the research activities might require work in public libraries or archives, ECMI seeks non-resident interns. Interns will be expected to work from their home countries or from the countries where they currently reside. Fluency in one or more of the minority languages used in that particular country, would be considered an asset.
The specific focus of this call falls on the coverage of minority issues in times of elections. Therefore the goal of the second phase of the research is to collect and analyze data from the pre- and post- EU elections period (May 2014) as well as from the respective last national and local elections in the particular country of residence of the interns.
Recognition of internship
Upon their successful performance, interns with be provided with all the necessary documents certifying completion of a full-time 3-month-internship with ECMI. If intern needs to cover a longer period, such can be agreed on an individual basis. Letters of recommendation will also be provided when the research output presented in the end of the internship meets the required standards. All additional issues will be discussed and agreed on an individual basis.
Unfortunately, the ECMI Media & Diversity internship programme does not offer remuneration but it offers a non-resident opportunity entailing no additional costs and time-flexibility.
ECMI believes that the non-resident format will suit students and young professionals who are interested in gaining practical research experience, in developing their professional skills under the methodological guidance of the ECMI experts and in the possibility for publishing their research findings with ECMI. Successful interns will become a part of the ECMI Interns Network and will be considered for further ECMI initiatives and research opportunities as ECMI field media experts.
