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 are generally conducted independently from a location of choice by the intern.

Virtuality

In 2012 CHRE went to a virtual setting, eliminating our permanent office in Cordoba Argentina and greatly reducing our carbon footprint. In 2015 CHRE’s headquarters moved the United States. We now work entirely online and through ad hoc in-person meetings. As an intern you are free to choose your place of residence.

Funding

CHRE does not provide funding for 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.
