The Secretariat of the Agency for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in Latin America and the Caribbean (OPANAL) has an internship opportunity for citizens of Caribbean member states, which must be applied for by Sunday, June 20.

The purpose of the internship at the OPANAL Secretariat is to provide graduate and postgraduate students in the fields of international relations, international law, political science, translation and IT/Software with on-the-job training opportunities.

Internships will be granted on a limited scale and participants will receive guidance and support from the Secretariat officers regarding the duties to be performed, which include: assisting in meeting preparations; assisting in the elaboration of proposals in support of the agency’s programmes, and assisting in the translation of documents and with research and background investigation of documents prepared by the Secretariat.

The duration of the internship programme is five months, from July 15 to December 14, 2021, and will be carried out either physically, blended, or remotely, depending on the accurate status of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. 

Selected candidates will receive a round-trip airfare to Mexico City, and a monthly allowance of US $1,000.00 for accommodation and living expenses.  Interns will be responsible for finding and securing their own lodging in Mexico City since the Secretariat does not provide accommodation.

Interested persons should submit an application, including the following documents to info@opanal.org: Curriculum Vitae (2 pages maximum);  

Statement of purpose (1-page maximum); Certified copies of university studies transcripts (including courses taken and grades received); a letter of endorsement from the candidate’s academic institution or Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and proof of enrolment in a health insurance plan.

All documents must be addressed to the Secretary-General of the Agency, Ambassador Flavio Roberto Bonzanini. For further information, emails should be sent to info@opanal.org
