UArctic is searching for two motivated and enthusiastic interns for the fall 2021 who are interested in Arctic matters and willing to acquire knowledge of the Northern region: one at the UArctic International Secretariat (at the University of Lapland, Rovaniemi, Finland), and one at the UArctic Thematic Networks and Research Liaison Office (at the University of Oulu, Finland). There is a hope that by fall interns will be able to work in Finland, however the Covid-19 situation will be monitored constantly and possibility of distance internship can be discussed. The internship placements are supported by Danish Agency for Science and Higher Education.
