Internships & Research opportunities


Internships are welcomed by ARCHELON. Interns receive the same training and have the same tasks as the rest of the volunteers. Any paperwork required by the University must be sent to the Volunteers Officer well beforehand, preferably with your application.

Please note that no ARCHELON project data can be collected or used for personal projects. Unfortunately, ARCHELON cannot support any training activities outside of the described volunteer duties and is unable to provide a tutor or mentor especially for interns.

The volunteer participation fee for interns is included in the table of participation fees.

Please check carefully the information of our projects about duties, accommodation, dates and fees, free time as well as the participation guidelines in order to select the project you are interested in before applying.

Please inform the Volunteers Officer ( of the requirements of the University within 10 days after submitting your on-line application. Please also note that no scientific data from this project can be used for any report you may have to write.

Once confirmed, and upon their arrival to the project, interns are asked to give their Field Leader all the paperwork that needs to be submitted by ARCHELON upon the completion of the internship. This is very important so that the required documents will be ready on time.
