Research Interns

Are you passionate about research in the area of human rights, and are you looking for professional experience in a leading international NGO?

Minority Rights Group (MRG) is offering internship opportunities for students who wish to join our Policy and Advocacy department. This is a great opportunity for postgraduate university students to gain work experience in a vibrant international NGO.

MRG welcomes applications from young researchers and activists that can help our team of experts develop our flagship World Directory of Minorities and Indigenous Peoples. This online resource provides an update on minorities and indigenous peoples in 226 countries worldwide. Our Directory readership is over 1 million, including UN representatives, national and international policy-makers, human rights lawyers and journalists.

We invite applications from postgraduate students working in the areas of international law, politics and international relations, human rights, policy, indigenous rights, participatory research, cultural and media studies, environmental studies, anthropology and related fields.

We particularly welcome applications from candidates belonging to ethnic, religious, linguistic, sexual and gender minorities, as well as candidates with disabilities.

The successful candidates may work remotely or join us in our London offices.

This is an unpaid position, but we cover a daily expense of £16.50 per day to cover travel and meals if you are working in our offices in Commercial Street (East London). Working hours are flexible and must work around your existing studying commitments.

Research internships are available for a period of 6 months to one year.
