Internship Program

The Kiel Institute offers internship opportunities for students of economics (or related fields).

The intern aims at deepening the knowledge acquired in university studies by gathering practical experience and becoming acquainted with the activities of a research institute. Typically, the intern will participate in a current research project, often including policy advisory components. The IfW also encourages students to write their Masters thesis at the Kiel Institute – after consulting the supervisor at the respective university and the relevant research area at the Kiel Institute .

The following principles apply:

  • The applicants should have a Bachelor’s degree and have shown above-average performance in their studies.
  • Knowledge of standard office software packages, econometric skills as well as good knowledge of English are desirable.
  • The internship should last at least 8 weeks, ideally 12 weeks.
  • Travel and accommodation expenses will not be refunded; the Institute though offers support in finding accommodation in Kiel during the internship.

The Kiel Institute cannot pay any remuneration for the internship. Interns may, however, be admitted to participate in one of the courses of the Advanced Studies Program in International Economic Policy Research.

Applications for an internship should arrive three months before the scheduled start of the internship. Applicants should list their primary and secondary research interests (see Kiel Institute research areas).

Complete applications should be sent to the head of the respective research area:

Head of Research Area XY
