Working with CILS

Scholars in Residence

Senior academics and practitioners wishing to conduct a research stay at CILS in Salzburg, e.g. as part of a sabbatical, may contact CILS about becoming a Scholar in Residence. Each Scholar in Residence enjoys use of a  work station with computer and CILS email address for the duration of her or his stay. A "bench fee" of EUR100 per month may be charged to cover administration costs. The Scholar in Residence may be asked to present a seminar, and is expected to engage appropriately with CILS events. Scholars in Residence will be expected to become CILS members. Contact Christian Campbell.


Occasionally, CILS accepts full- or part-time law student volunteers (in residence or external) as interns to assist with its projects. Applicants usually should have begun the  penultimate year of their law studies (e.g. 2L or 3L, exceptionally 1L), have strong academic records, good references, good concise formal English writing skills, and  interest in public international, private international, European Union or comparative law. The ability to read (and write) German or another (European) language, law review experience, coursework in one of the above-mentioned fields of law are not required, but would be advantageous. Full-time (in residence) volunteers are considered for 5- to 15-week stays, usually during the long (summer) break from their studies. Part-time (external) volunteers are considered for engagements of  at least 1 semester (15 weeks) and averaging 4 hours per week (anytime). Contact Christian Campbell.

Apply by emailing curriculum vitae with a cover letter stating career goals, suitability for an internship at CILS*, and proposed time-frame.

* Do not confuse these internships at CILS with the internship program CILS administers with Suffolk University Law School where we place US JD students with foreign law firms, NGOs, etc.

Currently we are not considering any other positions.
