Media Lab Europe research internships
Media Lab Europe offers internships to individuals wishing to increase
their research experience independently or in conjunction with academic
degree programmes. Interns at Media Lab Europe undertake short
projects or provide help on projects already in progress, as defined
by the group leader with whom they work. These positions are open to
students seeking summer work or a work placement in a research lab, or
recent graduates looking for a short-term work opportunity.
Undergraduate interns are referred to as EUROPs (European
Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme). Internships may be
paid, unpaid, for-credit, not-for-credit, part-time, or full-time
depending on various circumstances.
How to apply
Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.
The principal components of an application are:
- Basic personal information
- Information on your skills and experience
- Short personal statement: This statement should give us an
impression of what makes you tick. Who are you? What do you know how
to do? What excites you about Media Lab Europe and the research
groups you wish to apply to? What do you have to offer that you think
could help these groups realise their visions? This statement should
be a maximum of 500 words in length.
- List of research groups you wish to
prioritise for your application
- Timing information: For example, are you interested in a
summer internship? Do you want to work part-time? What dates are you
available? How many weeks or months would you ideally like to work at
the Lab for? Is the timing of your internship fixed by a degree
programme? When will you no longer be available? This information is
very important since applications are accepted on an ongoing basis;
sometimes project needs are not recognized for several months
after an application has been received, and we need to know when you
are longer available.
