Deadline: Ongoing recruitment. The Decision and Policy Analysis Area (DAPA) of the International Centre for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) is seeking English speaking recent graduates for 6-12 month internships. CIAT is an international research center, one of the fifteen global centers of the Consultative Group on International Agriculture Research (CGIAR). Located in Cali, Colombia and working on international projects in Africa, Asia and Central and Latin America, the DAPA Research Area evaluates the effects of climate change, evaluates technology and knowledge gaps, critically analyses environmental and agricultural policy in Latin America, and considers barriers to market access for small, rural producers in developing countries.
The interns will gain experience in international research for development, and will be actively encouraged to use the internship as a stepping stone to further education at the masters or PhD level.
The interns are expected to work on a range of tasks from project and report writing, to analysis of data and publication of peer-reviewed journal articles. We seek young, enthusiastic and energetic people with solid English skills, to spend a 6-12 month period of time in our head office in Cali, Colombia. We provide the cost of tickets to and from Colombia, plus a monthly stipend of US$750 (sufficient for basic living in Colombia).
This is an open call with no deadline. Applicants should send an email to Andy Jarvis (a [dot] jarvis [at] cgiar [dot] org) with a CV and application letter outlining your motivation, research interests and medium term career plans. Also be explicit about your potential areas of interest with respect to the Decision and Policy Analysis program’s work. For further information on the Decision and Policy Analysis Program.
We are also open to receiving Masters students for 3-6 month internships for thesis studies on topics of strategic importance to DAPA. We can supply data and co-supervision, but for short term visits cannot offer a stipend. If interested, please contact Andy Jarvis with a CV and brief outline of subject interest.
