The intern will be working primarily with Professor Chellie Spiller & Associate Professor Jason Mika. The internship project is a part of a broader NPM Research Programme, He oranga whānau: mahi ngātahi - Whānau livelihoods and wellbeing, which takes a tikanga-informed approach to accelerating Māori livelihoods and enterprise within the broader concept of a Māori wellbeing economy, to enhance whānau livelihoods and wellbeing.

The intern will develop skills in working as part of a research team to complete deadlines and communicate ideas, alongside conducting systematic literature reviews, categorising, and organising data and deepening their understanding of te reo Māori lexicon.
