Internship Opportunity for Refugees

The Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) is the national institute which prepares expert reports and opinions on questions of food, feed and chemical safety, as well as consumer health protection, on the basis of internationally recognised scientific assessment criteria. It advises the German government and other institution s and interest groups in these areas. The BfR conducts its own research on topics closely rel ated to its assessment tasks. It is a legally

We are offering a 3-month internship to refugees wh o have a prospect of remaining in Germany and who have worked or would like to work in the field of consumer health protection. The internship is intended to facilitate future employment in this field of science.
