An internship with the Centre for International Security Studies at the University of Sydney provides you with the opportunity to work closely with experts in the security field and enhance your long-term career prospects.

You will be given the opportunity to work with a member of the CISS staff, participate in CISS activities, and in some cases work on jointly producing online posts and journal articles. Your activities will be closely tailored to the time you have at your disposal. These internships provide an excellent way of enhancing your CV and opening up career prospects for the future.

Assignments may include drafting posts and writing for online journals such as The Conversation, researching traditional and/or non-traditional security issues, assisting with the preparation of academic publications and other outreach materials, assisting with interactive classes in various CISS Masters units, participating in CISS activities and more.

We are not currently taking any new interns. Please check back in January 2018 for new openings.
