K-RITH offers a range of internship opportunities:
Our short-term internship programme runs from June-August each year. Students need to identify their own funding as although K-RITH covers laboratory expenses, we do not offer financial support to cover relocation costs or a daily stipend. Please only apply if financial support has been obtained. To apply please submit your CV and a covering letter with a 200 word motivation on why you should be selected for the programme. The deadline for applications is 31 January each year.
Please submit complete applications to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any questions regarding the programme or the application process please email email@example.com
