Finnish National Gallery
Call for Research Interns 2024
The Finnish National Gallery’s international research internship programme is intended for Masters-level students of art history or cultural history. We actively support research interns in their hands-on research work with our collections. An internship is a salaried position.
Through its research internship programme, the Finnish National Gallery supports students who are writing their Master’s theses on topics that draw on its collections and materials. Suitable research topics for the internships may also be related to future exhibitions at Finnish National Gallery museums.
The role of the Finnish National Gallery is to support the intern’s skills in practices related to collection research. Each intern is assigned a professional tutor at the Finnish National Gallery. The Finnish National Gallery is not responsible for the academic supervision of the intern’s Master’s thesis.
- The duration of the internship is three months.
- The intern is employed by the Finnish National Gallery.
- The salary of a research intern matches that of a university trainee.
A prospective intern should state in their application the materials from the Finnish National Gallery collection that they have chosen to research, and should undertake to research them during the internship period. We would like the research material to form part of the intern’s Master’s thesis. During the internship period, the intern is required to write an English text based on the research they have conducted at the Finnish National Gallery and the materials researched. The text may be published as part of the FNG Research web magazine.
The research internship programme is one of the ways in which the Finnish National Gallery actively partners with academia, with the aim of upholding humanistic values and promoting an understanding of the world and culture by producing new, meaningful knowledge.
In 2024 the Finnish National Gallery is prepared to receive two research interns.
