Eligibility requirements:
Applicants must have completed their higher education and want to improve their skills and acquire experience during the years following their graduation.
Terms of traineeship programme:

The traineeship programme is normally on a full-time basis but part-time arrangements can be agreed upon depending on both the requirements of the department/programme and the availability of the trainee. The trainees are expected to work in a department/programme which has selected them, under the supervision of a staff member. The staff member may either act as a tutor or work in close collaboration with a designated tutor. Both the name of the direct supervisor and the one of the tutor should be stipulated in the terms of Reference.
Status:
Trainees are considered gratis personnel. They are not staff members and shall not represent the Institute in any official capacity.
