Up to 19 IDRC Internship Awards


The IDRC Internship awards provide exposure to research for international development through a program of training in research management and grant administration under the guidance of IDRCprogram staff. The internship is designed to provide hands-on learning experiences in research program management - in the creation, dissemination and utilization of knowledge from an international perspective.

In principle, IDRC supports research on all parts of the developing regions of the world. At this time, the Centre Training and Awards Program is not supporting awards which involve research in Burma, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Eastern Europe or Central Asia.

The intern will undertake a program of research on the topic submitted when competing for the internship award, and will be trained in the techniques of research management through hands-on experience with the Centre's policies and practices for grant administration under the mentorship of a Program Officer(s).

Program:
Internships will be considered for a program of training and research responding to IDRC’s research priorities. IDRC’s research activities focus on four Program Areas:
  • Social and Economic Policy
  • Environment and Natural Resource Management
  • Information and Communication Technologies ICT for Development
  • Innovation, Policy and Science
The interns will undertake a program of research on the topic submitted (see the Programming Units' requirements below) when competing for the Internship during a part (often around 50% ) of their time and will be trained in the techniques of research management through hands-on work experience with their chosen program’s programming and practices. They usually work under the mentorship of a Program Officer(s).
For approximately 50% of the time the selected candidates will be expected to provide support to management and program staff in some of the following areas: synthesis of project outcomes; production of publications and dissemination materials or activities on research results; participation in team meetings; research tasks to locate, review and synthesize relevant material; preparation of state of the art reviews; preparation of correspondence, reports and presentations; assistance with the organization of meetings, workshops and seminars; preparation of minutes; updating and maintaining databases; and maintenance of the website; exchange with other institutions working on a broad range of issues related to programming.

Duration

Internships are tenable for a minimum of 6 months and a maximum of 12 months at IDRC headquarters in Ottawa or in a Regional Office. Developing-country nationals residing in their home country (or another country) must hold their internships in the appropriate Regional Office.

Number of Awards
Approximately nineteen (19)

Employment Status
Interns doing their internship in Canada will receive a salary in a range from CA$36 754 to CA$42 548 per year, depending on qualifications and experience. They will be considered as full-time term employees of the Centre. Benefits include contributions to Employment Insurance, Employer Health Tax and the Canada Pension Plan and 4% in lieu of vacation leave. Some travel and research expenses will also be supported, up to a maximum of CA$10 000. The salary range and benefits for interns located in the Regional Offices will vary according to regional conditions.

Relocation of Interns
Developing country Interns should be based, preferably and where possible, in the IDRC Regional Office closest to their own country. In cases where this is not possible, or where the programming unit feels that there are compelling reasons for the Intern to be based in Ottawa for mentoring and for their research program, IDRC will cover the travel costs from their country to Ottawa to take up the internship (and return at the end of the internship).

Eligibility
The program is aimed at candidates who, through demonstrated achievements in academic studies, work or research, have shown interest in the creation and utilization of knowledge from an international perspective. Canadian citizens, permanent residents of Canada and citizens of developing countries may submit an application. They must be either currently registered in a Master's Program or have completed a Master's Degree in a recognized university. Their research must focus on a developing country. Candidates need not be affiliated with an institution. They may participate in internships as part of an academic requirement.

Deadline
Deadline for receipt of applications: 12 September 2009 (awards will be announced in December 2009).

Selection
IDRC staff will review the applications and select successful candidates.

Applications
The application must show how the intern will accomplish a set of learning objectives. IDRC requires applicants to specify only one Program Initiative to match their interest. At its discretion, IDRC may forward the application to a second Program Initiative.

The specifications for Centre Internships are linked to current program priorities and structure. The Centre reserves the right to change program priorities and structure and this may determine the final choice and allocation of Centre Internships.

Applications will be evaluated according to criteria, such as relevance to sustainable and equitable development and to IDRC priorities, quality of the research proposal and suitability of the candidate.

If there are ethical questions connected with the research, the applicant may, at IDRC’s discretion, be required to submit the appropriate approval for the Ethic’s Committee of the University.
