Internships

We are also keen to do our best for young scientists. Every year we offer a number of internships in our departments. These paid internships are usually offered during the period of April through to October, preferably for a period of six months.

Our interns are mostly university students of higher semesters, primarily studying agronomy, biology, geography or environmental science but also include students at polytechnic universities as well as farmers. Post-graduate internships are also an option. Interns work primarily within one division but are also given insights into other divisions. At the end of the internship the interns prepare a report, usually on a topic they have researched independently.
