Working With Us

Thank you for seeking employment opportunities at EICF. Working with EICF provides challenging and intellectually stimulating opportunities to address some of the most pressing issues concerning India - EU relationship. In general most of our team works from our office in Chennai but there is also a possibility of working anywhere from India or Europe.

There are three paths to joining the EICF team:

  • First, we recruit for specific positions within established research or consulting projects. Such vacancies arise on an irregular basis.
  • Second, we are interested in strengthening our analysis and consulting capacity at both a junior and more senior level (especially in the fields of energy and environment). If you are interested in joining our team and willing to help shape EICF's analysis and consulting work, please send your CV to us with a brief letter on what you expect from working with EICF and what you would bring to the institute.
  • Third, a limited number of internships are offered. These positions are either unpaid or minimally paid depending upon the work but we endeavour to ensure a positive and beneficial experience for all interns. Interns are supervised and their activities depend on the Programme/Department they join. It can range from research work and the preparation of draft reports to the compilation of statistical data, administrative duties, assisting with event and media management, and more. Successful applicants can expect to gain direct exposure to the work and management of a think-tank. Hours are flexible. We are happy to consider applications for full-time or for part-time internships.

Our working language is English. Knowledge of Tamil, Hindi (and other languages such as German, Spanish and French) is an asset.
