The European Forest Institute (EFI), the International Forestry Students’ Association (IFSA) and the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) are collaborating in a joint capacity development project on global student networking and green jobs in the forest sector.
The Dare to Explore! Traineeship Program (DTE) is an integral part of this project, which offers specified, 3-months paid traineeship opportunities each year for 2019, 2020, and 2021. The trainee positions are intended to familiarize students of forest(ry) programs with work at the science-policy-interface at the international level, including research, communication, and policy-relevant activities.
With this open call, the hosting organizations are inviting applications by students or recent graduates (not more than 1 year after graduation) from universities which have an IFSA LC (See the attached list for eligible Universities). Candidates can apply for one of the traineeship positions only. Application deadline is June 13th, 2021 at 11:59 pm CET.
In 2021 the following traineeship positions are available:
DTE_01: “Capacity building – Setting up the IFSA TreE-learning platform” with the EFI-IFSA_IUFRO project team remotely or in Bonn, Germany
DTE_02: “Planning of the International Forest Policy Meeting (IFPM4) 2022” with the Governance programme at EFI Bonn, Germany
