AIMS-NEI MS4CR interns will be placed in research groups in either public or private sector organisations in Africa that have vested interests in the field of climate science and resilience. The intern will work on a specific project that is fully integrated into the work of the host institution. The intern will also have an academic supervisor appointed by AIMS-NEI who will make periodic visits to the host institution.
Applicants must clearly demonstrate how their research at AIMS is related to climate change and how the MS4CR internship will help them achieve their career aspirations. Female applicants are strongly encouraged to apply.
AIMS-NEI will contribute to a monthly stipend for all interns. Additional costs of hosting the intern, including internal supervision and mentoring, facilities, and project expenses will be borne by the host institution.
The recipient will recognise the support of the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and Global Affairs Canada (GAC) by including in all publications and any public reference to the project the following acknowledgement: “This work was carried out with the aid of a grant from the International Development Research Centre, Ottawa, Canada, www.idrc.ca, and with financial support from the Government of Canada, provided through Global Affairs Canada (GAC), www.international.gc.ca.”
Institutions interested in hosting an MS4CR intern should send an initial expression of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org. AIMS will respond to this and successful discussions will lead to the placing of a project description on the Open MS4CR Internship Opportunities page.
