The Council of Canadian Academies (CCA) is now accepting applications for its 2020 Internship Program. The CCA convenes the best experts in their respective fields to assess the evidence on complex scientific topics of public interest to inform decision-making in Canada.

The Internship Program provides an opportunity for two successful applicants to work at the interface of science and public policy. Interns will engage directly in the CCA’s assessment process and gain experience interacting with experts at panel meetings, carrying out research and writing in support of assessments, and helping to bring reports through production.

The Internship Program is a full-time commitment of six months. All interns carry out their placement at the CCA office in Ottawa. The application deadline is March 9, 2020.
