Internship at EAJS

Closing date for applications approaching!

 
The European Association for Jewish Studies encourages academic research and teaching in all disciplines contributing to Jewish Studies. With more than eight hundred members in Europe and beyond, the Association significantly contributes to the visibility of Jewish Studies across the continent. It has recently expanded its activities by initiating two conference grant programmes to support the academic endeavours of its members.
 
The EAJS now invites applications for an internship for the duration of six months, from January to June 2016.
 
The task of the intern will be twofold: to contribute to improving contacts between the Association and postgraduate students (MPhil, MSt and PhD students) across the continent, and to contribute to an up-to-date internet presence of the Association.
 
Closing date for applications: 20th November 2015
