Internship at the EAJS
The European Association for Jewish Studies encourages academic research and teaching in all disciplines contributing to Jewish Studies. With more than one thousand members in Europe and beyond, the Association significantly contributes to the visibility of Jewish Studies across the continent. It has expanded its activities by initiating two conference grant programmes to support the academic endeavours of its members.
The EAJS now invites applications for an internship for the duration of six months, from February 1 to July 31, 2018.
The task of the intern will be twofold: to contribute to improving contacts between the Association and postgraduate students across the continent, and to contribute to an up-to-date internet presence of the Association.
In close cooperation with the Association’s administrator, the intern will review existing listings of Jewish Studies programmes and departments across Europe and contact these institutions, if necessary.
The intern will gain insights in the present state of Jewish Studies in Europe, establish contacts across the continent, and gain hands-on experience of an academic organisation. The time investment should be between two and four hours per week.
The successful candidate should be enrolled in a Jewish Studies programme at a European university. They will be able to complete the tasks involved from their place of study; a physical presence at the Association’s office is not required. As the Association’s language is English, the intern is expected to have a high level command of this language. They should also be comfortable with basic IT programmes and applications (MS-Word, MS-Excel, WordPress).
The EAJS will contribute to the intern’s attendance at one of the academic events funded by the Association’s two conference grant programmes (contribution to include travel, accommodation and per diem expenses up to an agreed amount). A list of these conferences is available using the following two links:
In addition, the Association offers a one-off payment of 400 GBP at the successful conclusion of the internship.
Please send a short letter of application to the Association’s secretary, Dr François Guesnet (University College, London): email@example.com, nominating an academic teacher/your supervisor as a referee, including their institutional e-mail-address.
Closing date for applications: 30 November 2017
