International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) offers short term paid ILRI Internship in Nairobi, Kenya. Interns will be operating in Nairobi Office five days per week; they will be under the supervision and mentorship of a staff member in the assigned department or program.
ILRI works to improve food and nutritional security and reduce poverty in developing countries through research for efficient, safe and sustainable use of livestock. It is the only one of 15 CGIAR research centres dedicated entirely to animal agriculture research for the developing world. Co-hosted by Kenya and Ethiopia, it has regional or country offices and projects in East, South and Southeast Asia as well as Central, East, Southern and West Africa.
Internships are short-term academic training for young professionals who join ILRI for a short period (usually 3 months or less but can be up to 6 months in length) as part of their academic curriculum and are expected to resume their studies upon completion of their internship.
The internship aims at helping students connect theory to practice, as well as nurturing young minds into livestock agriculture. This is a short term paid internship as ILRI offers a stipend to cover living expenses as well as insurance to their interns.
