CSAG invites young graduates to apply to intern for a year at the Climate System Analysis Group based at the University of Cape Town. The intern will work with key research staff within existing projects and towards proposals and new contract work within the unit. This opportunity is great for those looking for hands on experience in research.

Candidates should be interested in one or more of the following themes;


•   Climate modelling

•   Atmospheric processes

•   Communicating climate information

•   Data dissemination

•   Stakeholder/user engagement

The internship will provide an incredible opportunity to work on the frontiers of science with researchers involved in a variety of exciting projects. The internship is thus an amazing experiential stepping-stone for further post-graduate studies. Placement will be for the period January – December 2014

There are two internship positions available for 2014.

    I saw a version of this advert that appealed particularly to students from MAM, PHY and EGS. I thought this was a good idea, though I wondered whether it would not also be useful to try and attract Statistics students as well?
