Research project "Nordic returnees from war-torn Ukraine" looking for interns

Internship at research project at the Department of Sociology in Lund. For students of the Department’s Master programs (internship courses SOCN20 and SOCN21).

The research project “Nordic returnees from war-torn Ukraine“ is looking for interns for the autumn semester 2024.

The Russian-Ukrainian war has attracted a vast number of voluntary personnel from across the world. There are many media reports and policy briefs on these volunteers, but almost no academic research. This project examines Nordic volunteers who are, or have been, in Ukraine to help the Ukrainian forces. Interviews will be conducted with individuals from Sweden, Denmark, and Norway, and follow-up interviews will be made with some of them to shed light on the personal challenges they go through. Moreover, online data will be collected. The focus of the internship is on medical personnel from the Nordics.


Successful applicants should have strong skills in qualitative methods, interaction ritual theory, and cultural theory. It is an advantage if applicants can speak Swedish/Norwegian/Danish.

What does the internship involve?

This internship is designed to provide the individual selected with the opportunity for hands-on experience with qualitative research. Internship tasks primarily include: recruiting interviewees, conduction interviews, transcription, collecting online data, and data coding.


20 weeks period.
