Internship in Germany with extended deadline!

Blogged by Rachel Ruscombe-King on May 20, 2016.

The Internship Programme is offering an internship with an extended deadline exclusively for Oxford students. Herzog August Library Wolfenbüttel, Germany, (Job ID 14285) is a research institute with rich holdings in European textual and visual sources from the Early Middle Age to the late 18th Century. The organisation has an internship for Masters or PhD students with knowledge of German.

The project will involve work on one of the various research or cataloguing projects currently being conducted by the library. The successful candidate will be given an opportunity to further their own research projects using the library holdings and will also be given an introduction to the whole spectrum of the library’s activities (museum, publications, fellowships and conferences). Research projects are currently focussed, among other things, on the digital editing of medieval and early modern texts, early modern modes of communication, and the history of collecting.

Feedback from previous Oxford interns:

“The work at the library was fascinating and the people enormously supportive. It gave me the feeling that research does not have to be a lonely business but can be a wonderful cooperative experience. I would love to return to a library like Wolfenbüttel. The experience certainly has changed my views on the work of a library in a positive way.”

 “The internship was a very valuable experience, allowing me not only to gain insight into what it would be like to work in an archive and in a foreign country, but also to carry out essential research for my DPhil project.”

For further details and to apply, students should visit CareerConnect, before the deadline of Friday May 30th.
