I would like to do a scientific internship at ARCNL. How does this work and what are the qualifications?

Are you a bachelor or master student looking for an internship? Then check our vacancies. If there aren’t any internships posted for the group you’d like to work in, you can send an open application to the group leader of that specific group.

• You’re currently studying physics, chemistry or a related subject.
• The internship must be a part of your curriculum.
• You’re a citizen of an EU-member state and/or you are a student at a Dutch University.
• You’re available for at least 6 months. In exceptional cases, shorter durations are possible.

We especially encourage students from technical universities to apply. At the start of the traineeship your trainee plan will be set out, in consultation with your ARCNL supervisor. This includes a small allowance.
