Job Description

This summer, we have an exciting opportunity for two summer interns in the area of economics.

The interns will collaborate on a project that explores Ireland’s long-term demographics and the links with government spending.

The project will involve the two interns working together on exploring relevant literature, gathering data, and developing an understanding of how various areas can best be understood with respect to future developments. The idea is to develop output that could be used by the Council for future updates of its Long-term Sustainability Report.

Staff in the Council’s Secretariat with experience in these areas will provide dedicated support throughout the project.

Interns will come away from the project with experience of what it is like to work in a professional organisation developing high-impact research with direct policy implications.

The internships are temporary posts lasting up to twelve weeks over summer, attracting a stipend of €519.96 per week, with flexible remote working solutions on offer.

Specific dates will primarily be based on candidates’ availability.

We will select a panel of candidates for any appointment.

Closing date

The closing date for applications is Friday, 31st March 2023.
