Post by gap on Mon 23 May 2011, 01:03

The European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI) in Flensburg, Germany, is soliciting applications for internship positions:

January to March
Deadline for application: 30 September
Notification: before 30 October

April to June
Deadline for application: 31 December
Notification: before 31 January

July to September
Deadline for application: 31 March
Notification: before 30 April

October to December
Deadline for application: 30 June
Notification: before 31 July

It is possible to negotiate other time slots upon request, especially to accomodate the different university terms in Europe and overseas. Please specify this in your application.

The Positions
The internship positions are unpaid (ECMI is not in a position to cover travel or any other costs related to the internship) and usually last three months. They will be based at ECMI headquarters in Flensburg or at the local offices in Tblisi or Pristina. You will participate in research and administration of ongoing ECMI projects, under the direction of the responsible ECMI researcher.

Depending on your profile, you can work in the following areas:

Action-oriented projects
Your profile:
Internships in ECMI's action-oriented projects are aimed at graduate or recent graduate students who have a particular interest in the Balkans, the Western CIS countries (Moldova / Ukraine) or the Caucasus. We expect a certain flexibility and ability to assist with a variety of tasks based on the needs of the Centre or Regional Office at the time of the internship.

Your tasks may include conducting targeted background research, tracking media coverage, assisting in the organization of training events and contributing to general office support duties, including updating of databases. There will of course be some overlap of duties, combining research and administrative tasks. The working language of ECMI is English; for our Regional Offices, knowledge of local language skills is a plus but not a necessity. The possibility of also undertaking independent research leading to a paper of publishable quality may be discussed on an individual basis.

Electronic Map
The ECMI project "Ethnopolitical Map of Europe" is meant to cover those regions in Europe, including the Balkans, the Western CIS countries and the Caucasus which are currently facing or have recently experienced ethnopolitical tension or conflict. The clickable map is guiding the users to official documents, which reflect international involvement in the reduction of ethnopolitical tension and resolution of interethnic conflicts in countries and regions of concern. Further, the map provides information on population statistics, current national legislation and relevant literature on the ethnopolitical situation in different countries.

Your profile:
You have a BA/BSc or preferably an MA in social sciences with a regional knowledge of the Balkans, the Caucasus or the Western CIS countries. You speak a language relevant for one of these regions.

Under the supervision of an ECMI Research Associate, you will participate in the work of developing a relevant regional section on the map, searching, identifying and selecting documents to be included in the map.

Your profile:
Experience in professional copy-editing/proofreading, preferably in areas related to ECMI's research and other activities. English mother tongue would be an advantage. Attention to detail and the ability to work to deadlines are crucial.

Depending on experience and time-lines, you will, under the supervision of the Publications Officer, provide assistance to ongoing projects or be responsible for specific project stages or projects. This may involve copy-editing of manuscripts in agreement with the ECMI house style for publication on the ECMI website, preparing manuscripts for publishers or proofreading manuscripts in their final production stage. Some projects also necessitate liaising with the authors during the copy-editing or proofreading stage.
