Internships

The Cyprus Interaction Lab (CIL) offers 3-5 internships per year in the areas of Human Computer Interaction and Instructional Technology.

The CIL internship program allows undergraduate and graduate students as well as recent graduates to work on projects in the fields of Human Computer Interaction and Educational Technology. CIL interns gain valuable real-world experience by getting involved with ongoing research activities of the Lab. CIL internships last for a period of 2-6 months and are completed under the supervision of a Lab member.

Apart from being an active member in the research activities of the lab, prospective interns at CIL should also actively participate in the organization of CIL events and workshops.

CIL internships are unpaid internships. International applicants are encouraged to apply for external funding (e.g., Erasmus Student Mobility for Placements program that enables higher education students to spend 3 months in an organization in another participating country).
