IIHS is now accepting applications from Indian and International Masters (including recent Masters) and Ph.D. students for internships at IIHS for periods between 2 and 6 months, from May to December 2014.
IIHS Internships aim to equip students to learn more about practice and research in their chosen fields, as well as immerse themselves in a unique interdisciplinary and innovative environment. Internships at IIHS straddle diverse disciplines such as technology, management, planning, public policy, law, environmental services, media study, economics and the social sciences.
IIHS Interns will be immersed in a rich learning environment involved in cutting edge themes. Interdisciplinary projects at IIHS are based on various themes involving one or more of the following research clusters:
- Economic development
- Environment, Climate change& sustainability

- Urban systems & infrastructure
IIHS is looking for interns who are committed to excellence, learning, and are willing to work both independently and, as part of interdisciplinary teams. Previous professional work experience and academic coursework in the chosen field for at least two continuous months is desirable but is not necessary.
