Student jobs at DARK

We are looking for bright, ambitious and proactive students to assist us with different administration and event logistics tasks 5 to 20 hours a week.

If you have the drive and the energy, if you are a problem solver and like a busy atmosphere, if you have a structured mind and an appetite for work, if on top of this you are service-minded and can be a true team player, then we would really like to hear from you!

The job

You will be part of a team of 4 or more students, under the responsibility of the center coordinator, and will have missions such as:

  • Helping out with the organisation of our summer guests programme
  • PA (Personal Assistant) activities for our Niels Bohr Professor
  • Assisting with conference organisation and logistics
  • Maintenance of our common areas (maintenance of coffee machine, ordering & organising supplies, keeping the common areas nice and clean)
  • Communication activities, website administration
  • Minor IT support
  • Reception duties for the Rockefeller building (distributing post, taking packages)
  • ... other ad hoc missions

We can accommodate contracts between 5 and 20 hours a week. The duration of the contract will be negotiated with the successful candidates, initially with a maximum of one year. The positions are to be filled ASAP.

If you are interested and motivated, please send your application to centre coordinator, Corinne Toulouse-Aastrup at with a single pdf file containing:

  • An approx. 1/2 to 1 page statement about yourself
  • A 1 page (maximum) resumé/CV. Make sure to mention specific competences or interests!
  • A summary of your latest grades (also one page max)

The job is based at the Rockefeller building, Juliane Maries vej 30, 2100 Copenhagen for the first half year. As we are moving to Vibenshus Runddel in the second half of 2018, you will be expected to move with us and participate in the activities related to the move.

We also have coffee ad libitum and a very nice fruit basket every day!
