The Junior Researcher Programme and its Internships
A key role for the Climate Centre within in the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement is to foster evidence-based knowledge that informs action on the ground and provides a basis for good decision-making, through close academic collaborations. This includes our own working paper, publications in peer-reviewed scientific literature, as well as an ongoing engagement with young academics in our Junior Researcher Programme. Students have advanced our work in supporting the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement and its partners to reduce the impacts of climate change and extreme weather events on vulnerable people.
Who can apply for internships with the Climate Centre?
To be eligible for a placement within the organization, students must be enrolled in a University (Masters or PhD level). We do, however, like to have an understanding of the academic deliverables to see if these match with our assignment.
