The ITER Organization offers five or six month internship opportunities for final-year Master's degree students. To see proposed scientific and technical internship subjects for 2016, please click here. Internships are also possible within support functions such as human resources, finance, communication, project coordination, and legal affairs.
To apply for an internship at ITER, please send your resume and a cover letter in English indicating your preferences in terms of field and dates. Please also attach the last official record of your grades and let us know if the internship is mandatory for the award of your degree.
Internship opportunities are limited to nationals from countries participating in the ITER Project (China, the European Union plus Switzerland, India, Japan, Korea, Russia and the United States).
Please also note that interns are not considered staff members and shall, therefore, not have the status of "Staff" within the meaning of the ITER Agreement and the Headquarters Agreement (see more information on these constitutive agreements in Legal Resources). Neither the ITER Staff Regulations nor the privileges and immunities granted to ITER Organization staff are applicable to interns. ITER Organization salary, pension scheme and social insurance coverage do not apply.
