Interns are expected to contribute to specific research projects, covering a wide range of topics in the energy sector, particularly those covered by the Energy Charter Treaty, namely transit and trade, investment, energy efficiency and dispute settlement.
Enrolment in an academic institute, a good knowledge of English and a strong interest in energy matters are essential requirements.
As a rule, the term of internship will be 3 months, which may be extended by mutual agreement. When appropriate, engagement on a part-time basis is possible. Interns will receive a monthly allowance of Euro 800 (on a full-time basis) from the Secretariat. They will be responsible for obtaining the necessary entry visa and/or residence permit, as well as appropriate health care insurance.
