About the Internships

CHRE Internships cover a variety of thematic topics, primarily in the fields of environmental and human rights. The program offers unique short and long-term opportunities for dynamic and self-motivated individuals to conduct research, fieldwork, training, and participate in other CHRE program-related activities. Internships will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis and will be intermittently posted on CHRE’s website as they become available. Internships may be at CHRE headquarters, with one of CHRE’s partners in Latin America , or conducted independently from an alternative location.

Virtuality

In 2012 CHRE went to a virtual setting, eliminating our permanent office in Córdoba and greatly reducing our carbon footprint. We now work entirely online and through ad hoc in-person meetings that are organized at partnering institutions such as local universities. Virtuality has not reduced our in-person contact, but rather made it more systematic and increased it! As an intern you are free to choose your place of residence, and while we greatly encourage you to come to Córdoba so that you can participate in our regular in person meetings, you can also engage with CHRE from a distance.

Funding

CHRE does not normally provide funding for internships, although on occasions, small grants may be available for specific internships. CHRE Interns are expected to secure funding from sponsoring institutions. CHRE will gladly provide Recommendation Letters for pre-selected candidates.

How to Apply

Interested parties are encouraged to send a preliminary letter of inquiry providing:

  • Curriculum Vitae (maximum 2 pages, including academic and professional experience).
  • Relevant academic and/or professional references.
  • Language skills (Spanish preferred but not mandatory).
  • A brief (one page) description of your areas of interests indicating what you hope to achieve from CHRE Internships.
