We are looking for value-oriented individuals who are passionate about the potential of the psychedelic experience as a tool for human development and therapy.

Why become an intern?

We are always looking for interns to help us build and maintain the MIND Foundation’s projects and programs. Working as an intern is meaningful; interns’ work contributes directly to psychedelic research and education and ultimately helps establish safe and legal spaces for the psychedelic experience. Further, interns may be given opportunities to meet important authors, researchers, and therapists from the fields of psychedelic science, consciousness research, neuroscience, prevention and therapy.

How to become an intern at MIND
  1. Fill in your application data in the form below.
  2. We evaluate applications monthly. After we evaluate your application, we will get in touch with you to let you know if we’d like to arrange an in-person appointment or online meeting with you.
  3. The internship application process consists of two interviews. The first interview is with the HR-department, to see if there is a general fit with our organization. If there is a fit, you will have a second interview with the director of the department that you could be assigned to.
  4. After this process has been succesfully completed, we will arrange the timeline for your internship and outline the projects you will work on.
