The ITER Organization offers internship opportunities to undergraduate and postgraduate students with the objective of providing these students with the opportunity to gain practical experience in their field of study, whilst collaborating in an international, scientific and multicultural environment. Internships are offered for up to six months, extendable for up to one year (depending on the category). To find out more about our internship program, please refer to our Welcome Booklet for Interns.

Please note that only applications submitted directly through this website will be taken into consideration. However, if you have any questions related to our internship program, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The ITER Organization also provides "Job shadowing" internships for secondary or high school students. Interns observe working conditions and may assist their IO staff supervisor in various tasks.
We only accept applications from students enrolled at a French international secondary school, international high school/section where internships are mandatory (e.g. "3ème" and "2nde" students in France) or English speaking students belonging to a school outside of France where internships are mandatory.
Internship opportunities are limited to nationals from countries participating in the ITER Project (China, the European Union plus Switzerland, India, Japan, Korea, Russian Federation and the United States).
Please also note that interns are not considered staff members and shall, therefore, not have the status of "Staff" as per 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. The ITER Organization salary, pension scheme and social insurance coverage do also not apply.
