TEPAV has begun receiving applications for its 2017 internship period.

We look for outstanding candidates with a variety of academic backgrounds from top universities. TEPAV is the best way to put your talents and knowledge to contribute to improving policy proposals through concrete projects.

As a TEPAV intern, you can apply what you’ve learned at school and involve in the process of conducting data-driven policy analysis for Turkey and the surrounded region.

TEPAV is offering month long full-time internship opportunities to successful undergraduate and graduate students as well as recent graduates with special interest in four programs (Macroeconomic Studies, Innovation Studies, Urban Studies, Area Studies) and six centers (Center for Impact Assessment, Center for Multilateral Trade Studies, Legal Studies Center, Center for EU Studies, Center for Governance Studies, TEPAV G20 Studies Center) operational within its structure and who are willing to improve themselves.
