Summer Internship ICTP

The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), based in Trieste, Italy, is offering a science communications summer internship for students (or recent graduates) enrolled in science writing programmes. We are looking for a student who can write timely, interesting articles about the science and training activities at the Centre. With the Trieste campus as his or her "beat", the intern will take the initiative to interview scientists and students and contribute articles to ICTP's newsletter, website and other United Nations-related publications. By the end of the internship the intern should have an impressive portfolio of clips.

The internship can last up to 2 months, with a small weekly stipend. ICTP will provide housing, daily subsistence allowance and round-trip transportation to and from Trieste, Italy.

More details about the internship, as well as ICTP, can be found at

Deadline is Friday 10 April 2009.
