Arctic Outreach and Science Communication Internships in Abisko, Sweden

Are you interested in learning and applying your science communications skills in the context of exciting ecological and environmental scientific research?

The Climate Impacts Research Centre is offering internships from March through November based at the Abisko Scientific Research Station, 200 km north of the Arctic Circle. Our research focuses on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and their interface at the edge of the Arctic.

Interns work with researchers, students, and the public to communicate our fascinating and important climate research globally. If you are fluent in dynamic website and social media tools, capable with a digital camera, video and audio recording, we would like to see you in Abisko! In the spring you will encounter excellent skiing and snow shoeing. During the summer the midnight sun affords infinite time for hiking and exploring the natural landscapes. Autumn is when the darkness returns ushering in the spectacular autumn colours, blueberries, and the northern lights.


Interns must commit to at least two months (60 days) to secure funding from the Erasmus Plus student trainee program. All interns must qualify and apply for the Erasmus Plus program to cover the costs of transportation to and from Abisko, housing at the Research Station and living expenses. Contact your home university Erasmus coordinator. All you need to bring is a good level of fitness and resilience to the weather conditions in this arctic environment. If you are interested in joining us, please send us your CV and a short motivation letter with at least one reference. You must provide proof of health insurance.

If you have any questions, just get in touch with us!
