Internship in Media Research

House of Research offers the opportunity to complete a paid internship in communication and media research. For up to three months – or even longer in the case of mandatory internships – interns assist and increasingly work independently in all areas and thus get to know the working practices and methods of a modern research institute.


  • Collaboration in the organization of field work
  • Support for current research projects
  • Participation in study conception and questionnaire development
  • Conducting content analyses
  • Data collection and analysis
  • Desktop research

The tasks and responsibilities are adapted according to previous knowledge and areas of interest. We are open to individual arrangements (e.g. part-time internships) to ensure compatibility with your studies.


  • Studies in journalism/communication/media sciences, sociology, business administration/economics or related fields
  • Interest in applied media/communication research as well as empirical methods and statistics
  • Good knowledge of MS Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) expected, statistical software (i. e. SPSS) desirable
