Internships for Research Master students

We offer master students who focus on doing research (known as ‘Research Masters’ in the Netherlands) the opportunity to do an internship at NIDI. You can use this internship to write a master thesis, but it can also be part of a course in the curriculum that involves research activities. During the internship you can participate in one of the many interdisciplinary research projects that we are involved in.

The length of the internship depends on the topic, but generally varies from three to five months. Both full-time and part-time arrangements are usually possible, but specific requirements may apply depending on the project.

Additional information about specific projects can be obtained from the contact person for each project.
