Dear all,



*Please find below details of our Remote Internship with DMAD*



The borders of many countries remain closed and it is currently almost
impossible to travel safe due to the outbreak of COVID-19, but that doesn't
mean that you can't benefit from our knowledge and develop your career or
get help with your thesis remotely. You can receive both research and
public outreach experience working with the DMAD team.
