Malach Centre Internship

In January 2019, a student internship programme was launched, which accepts applicants from the Czech Republic and abroad. Its content corresponds to the ERASMUS+ Practical Placement model, with participants being engaged in the work of the Centre on a part-time basis. They are given the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the technological and content aspects of our work. However, due to the significant time flexibility, this internship can also be applied as a practical internship requirement fulfilment of the relevant study programmes at Czech universities.

Potential applicants can contact us via malach(at)knihovna.mff.cuni.cz.
