Open call: IFSA Internship at the IUFRO HQ


For several years, the International Union of Forest Research Organisations (IUFRO), as one of IFSA’s partners, has been offering an internship opportunity to students from IFSA Local Committees. Each year, one (maximum two) student(s), has the opportunity to work at the IUFRO headquarters in Vienna
for approximately two months, assisting with diverse projects within IUFRO and getting an insight into the work of an international organisation. This year, one student will have the opportunity to work with IUFRO for two month starting mid October 2017. The tasks of the student intern(s) mostly consist of office work, such as assisting with the preparation of reports, updating of databases and translation of documents. IFSA is able to support the intern(s) with a small stipend to partially cover the subsistence costs in Vienna. The amount varies, depending on the number of interns in a given year. The successful applicants will be informed about the exact amount upon being notified of acceptance. The intern will be stationed at the IUFRO HQ at Marxergasse 2, Vienna, Austria.
