PATRIR’s interns are an invaluable source of help, and we could not do what we do without them. We are always looking for enthusiastic people to get meaningfully involved with any of our projects, and in return we are keen to offer you a great working/learning experience. We would like you to learn, develop and gain experience in areas that are of most interest to you.

Internships can be performed in one of the three departments of PATRIR (‘Department of Peace Operations‘, ‘International Peace and Development Training Centre‘ and ‘Department for Education for Peace and Development‘) choosing what fits your skills and career path the most or you can choose a variety of activities that crosscut the three departments.

Each Intern will be assigned a supervisor, who will be responsible for the definition of the monthly activity plan and also a mentor, who will be a guide and tutor during your stay at PATRIR (he or she will be your point of reference for any issue, not only work related ones, that might arise in the months of your stay in Cluj-Napoca).
