NAMMCO internship
Tromsø, Norway
North Atlantic Marine Mammal Commission
  • Undergraduate
  • Other

The North Atlantic Marine Mammal Commission is looking for a new member to join the Secretariat, and the internship is a great way for students or early career individuals to enhance their skills while working for an Intergovernmental Organisation. Applicants can only be from NAMMCO member or EEA countries due to new VISA regulations for nationalities outside these countries which we are unable to assist.

The internship presents a potential to work on project(s) relevant to the work of NAMMCO. Currently we are particularly, but not only, seeking applicants interested in the topic of marine mammal-fisheries interactions and willing to participate in the assessment of the by-catch risk posed by different fisheries on marine mammals in the NAMMCO management areas.

Depending on the activities, the intern may also get the opportunity of travelling for joining NAMMCO meetings in the Nordic countries. The preferred duration of the internship is between 9 and 12 months.

Start of the next internship ~ 01.09.2023 (flexible)

Application deadline = 31.07.2023
