“Columba-Hypatia: Astronomy for Peace” is a joint astronomy outreach project run by GalileoMobile and the Association for Historical Dialogue and Research, which takes place on the divided island of Cyprus. The project is funded by the International Astronomical Union with support from the Max Plank Institute for Astrophysics. The project aims to inspire young people to be curious about science and the Cosmos, while also using astronomy as a tool for promoting meaningful communication and a culture of peace and nonviolence. Our team conducts educational astronomy activities and explores the Cosmos with children and the public from the various communities living on the island, to inspire a sense of global citizenship “under the same sky” and to look beyond borders.
GalileoMobile and the Association for Historical Dialogue and Research (AHDR) are looking for a highly motivated individual with a background in STEM Education and/or Peace Education (or relevant fields) and an active interest in astronomy and/or peace education to join the offices of the AHDR based in the Home for Cooperation (H4C), at the heart of Nicosia, Cyprus.
The intern will provide support to the operations of the ‘Columba-Hypatia: Astronomy for Peace’ Project and will be supported by GalileoMobile and AHDR teams that will help her/him to develop skills in establishing networks, research, project assistance, drafting of educational material and event planning. The intern will provide both educational and administrative support and is expected to work on a wide range of activities and events in the context of the aforementioned project.
The length of the internship is six (6) months, starting in March 2019 (starting date negotiable), with a possibility of extension until the end of 2019 subject to performance and funding availability.
