CFPR Internship Opportunity for NUS Students

The Centre for Family and Population Research (CFPR) is inviting applications for the CFPR Internship Program.  Consistent with its goal of training and mentoring the next generation of family and population scholars and practitioners, the Centre is providing on-the-job training opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students. From having the opportunity to work with leading family and population scholars in NUS with their research projects, to organizing events such as research seminars and conferences, or having an actual experience on how to run a training program, or learning how to manage the daily operations of a research centre, CFPR interns will benefit largely from their posting with CFPR.

CFPR is dedicated to the scientific advancement of research and training to understand the trends, determinants, and consequences of family and population changes, particularly in Asia.  CFPR’s works revolve around these major themes: fertility and marriage, family policies; aging and health; children and youth development; intergenerational relations and transfers; changing family living arrangements and family values in Asia; migration and integration; human capital and labor market; and, gender relations.  Our research adopts a multi-disciplinary, life course, and international comparative approach.  Currently, CFPR has a strong team of more than twenty faculty research associates and affiliates from various disciplines who are working on the Centre’s various research themes.

  • Managing and updating the Centre’s online platforms, maintaining contact databases, summarizing and synthesizing research works and publications may also be required from time to time.
  • Interns will also be asked to provide assistance in organizing events that involves setting-up the venue, sending out invitations, coordinating with caterers, and other logistical preparations.
  • Rendering administrative support for the daily operations of the Centre will also be required.

Terms

  • The internship is open to all NUS students.
