General information

6 months

At the University of Malta, in collaboration with the Malta Chamber of Scientists NGO, we are working on a number of exciting EU projects focused on public engagement, science communication, urban greening and transdisciplinary practice. 


We are looking for people that have a mixed background/experience in any of the following fields: design, environmental science, arts, humanities, social sciences, humanities, science communication, events organisation and dissemination, and/or education. 

The SciCultureD project (Eramus+ funded), is looking for enthusiastic team members to help in the organization of the project's final conference to be held in Malta on October 29th and to help curate the arts exhibition and its launch on the same day of the conference. Do you have experience in event management, marketing or art exhibitions?
Then join our transdisciplinary project from June to December 2024! (Dates can be discussed).

Our office is dynamic and interns will be involved in several different projects. This means the environment is exciting, but also challenging. We expect people to navigate a constantly changing environment, but also provide training and support where needed. For example, potential interns can request workshops in a number of areas, from how to write public releases to the key elements of dialogue and public speaking. 


Daily tasks will include logistics and administrative duties (for example, in coordinating a public engagement event), generating social media content, minuting project/partner meetings and literature review. Specific tasks, depending on background and skill set, may include video editing, graphic design and writing/editing articles.
