CIRAD welcomes some 450 interns a year. This concerns every field of our scientific activity, as well as our support services (IT, human resources, etc.).

Key figures

  • 452 interns a year
  • 16% of interns are nationals of countries other than France
  • 28% complete their internship in a French overseas department or region

Internship opportunities

There are no internships on offer at present.

How to apply

You can send an unsolicited application to the research units or support services for which you may be suitable.

Applications for internships must be made several months in advance, to enable processing.

Welcoming partners

Under our cooperation agreements and research projects, we welcome around 130 new partners each year for varying lengths of time, from a few weeks to several years.

Building strategic partnerships is fundamentally important for CIRAD: research in partnership is a source of synergies between science and cooperation with tropical and Mediterranean countries, open to a wide range of stakeholders.
