The aim of the programme is to give the opportunity to young qualified students or graduates to experience an international research experience, which will encourage them in the search and pursuit of a scientific career. The selected individuals will have the opportunity to conduct research under the guidance of a mentor, to become acquainted with the latest research methods and techniques, and to gain access to the state-of-the-art facilities of the Cyprus Institute (unless remotely participating in research selection programme). It is also noted that this year the summer internship programme will be open for administrative positions.
Choice of research programmes
The interns will have the opportunity to choose the topic of the internship through the list of research projects which is posted on the website of the Cyprus Institute or to suggest their own research topic, provided the institute is able to provide supervision and has the facilities to accommodate it.
