The ScicommJobs policy for unpaid internships is not to promote them but since there’s gold in them thar job descriptions I am happy to publish them once they’ve closed. I have mixed feelings about this one as it’s ‘only’ for 3 days a week which does give someone the possibility of finding work for the other 2, 3 or 4 (eek!) days, depending on their circumstances but I’m generally not very in favour of unpaid internships that take up more than half of anyone’s reasonable salaried time. Your views may differ of course.
Hopefully I’ve set this post up correctly so that it should publish on 8 Jan 2014. Embarrassment if not 😉
