We look forward to receiving your complete online application, which we ask you to submit to Stephanie Frequente, CSCS, via Trevano 131, 6900. Please specify in your application explicitly a maximum of 2 topics which fit your interests. As there is a high demand for the internships in certain periods and we can only offer 2 internships per quarter, kindly also state your availability.
