The ITER Organization offers internship opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students with the objective of providing students with the opportunity to gain practical experience in their field of study while collaborating in an international scientific and multicultural environment. Internships are offered for up to six months (extendable to one year depending on the category); to see proposed scientific, technical and support function opportunities for 2018 please click here. To find out more about our internship program please refer to our Welcome Booklet for Interns.
To apply for an internship at ITER, please send your resume and a cover letter in English indicating your preferences in terms of field and dates. Please also attach the last official record of your grades. Applications should be sent by email to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Internship opportunities are limited to nationals from countries participating in the ITER Project (China, the European Union plus Switzerland, India, Japan, Korea, Russia and the United States).
Please also note that interns are not considered staff members and shall, therefore, not have the status of “Staff” within the meaning of the ITER Agreement and the Headquarters Agreement (see more information on these constitutive agreements in Legal Resources). Neither the ITER Staff Regulations nor the privileges and immunities granted to ITER Organization staff are applicable to interns. ITER Organization salary, pension scheme and social insurance coverage do not apply.
