Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) is calling for research projects suitable for an intern to complete over a 10-week period. The internship programme is for Māori and indigenous pre-doctoral students who want to advance their skills and capacity in indigenous development research. Each student will work under the direction and guidance of a senior researcher within an existing programme of research aligned to the research direction of, but not necessarily currently funded by, NPM.

NPM invites senior researchers who have suitable projects available during the 2011-2012 summer to apply. Actual starting and finishing dates will be determined by the supervisor and are expected to align with the student’s summer holiday.

NPM will fund up to $5000 per grant awarded and there are 10 available internships.  Once selected, the successful projects will be advertised on the NPM website for students to apply.

Project submissions close 22nd August. For more details and to apply, visit the internships page
