Research Interns

The internship is primarily intended for research scholars working on China and the East Asian region on the whole. The program will not only help them gain work experience, but also equip them with research, writing and other organizational skills as well as give them exposure to high-quality scholarship which can sustain their interest enough to encourage them to take up higher studies on East Asia. The general duration of an internship is 2 months.

ICS accepts applications all through the year. Please apply with your updated CV, a one-page writing sample, and two letters of recommendation (of which one must be from a faculty member) to careers@icsin.org.
