CSES envisages to encourage students to develop an aptitude for research by welcoming them as interns and volunteers and giving them a first-hand research experience. Interns should be students pursuing Post Graduate Degrees or Ph.D or should have graduated recently in the fields of social science, social work, sociology, gender studies, political science, development studies and other disciplines. The internship opportunities include carrying out independent research projects, field work, building databases, preparing briefing papers, reports and presentations. Interns can also associate in the online outreach of CSES by creating social media content for the Centre on platforms such as Facebook, Youtube and Blogs. Internship is offered for a minimum period of one month. In the past, we have hosted interns and volunteers from Universities located in countries including Belgium, Canada, Netherlands, UK, Bangladesh as well as from different parts of India. Internship positions are generally un-remunerated but in select cases, they may be given a small stipend. Please send your CV by email to
