Interns

Article Index

The HCGES offers every Winter, Spring and Summer two internship positions.

Interns will receive an insight to the work of the institute and have the possibility to gain experience in different areas through active involvement in the centers' activities. We are searching for young and interested students that love to communicate, try new things and apply their academic skills in a practical way. Furthermore, we encourage our interns to propose own ideas and suggestions. Moreover, we offer the possibility to get to know the people and the country, as well as life at an Israeli university and also to deepen your Hebrew knowledge.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
