Research Internships

The three participating institutions of the MWW Research Association offer two research internships to international students pursuing a master’s or doctoral degree in the humanities. Jointly established by the MWW and the University of Oxford, the programme is now open to students from all over the world.

The aim of the programme is to promote the international exchange of knowledge and to offer graduate students the opportunity to become acquainted with a modern, non-university research library, archive or museum in Germany. The several-week-long internship offers students insights into the areas of digitalisation, acquisition, cataloguing, manuscripts, restoration, exhibitions and public relations, and enables them to improve their knowledge of the German language and culture.

The internship programme issues a call for applications each year. The next call with detailed information on the content and application modalities will be posted in spring 2021. Students of the University of Oxford should apply via the Careers Service.

Please note: The internship programme ceases to exist with the end of the second funding period in February 2024.
