World Intellectual Property Organization:

Call for Applications to the PCT Fellowship Program for Graduate Students

 

The PCT Translation Division of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) organizes a Fellowship Program for assistant terminologists, translators, and translation technologists, with the aim of providing on-the-job experience at an international organization. WIPO is now accepting applications for the 2021 edition of the Program. 

 

There are three types of Fellowship position:

  • Terminology fellows are trained in the creation of terminology entries for the PCT Termbase and subsequent publication in WIPO Pearl.
  • Translation fellows are trained in the translation of patent abstracts and patent examination documents.
  • Translation technology fellows are trained in the use and support of translation and terminology management systems and machine translation systems.

 

Staff of the PCT Translation Division at WIPO provide training and guidance to participants throughout the period of their fellowship in Geneva. Fellowships may vary in length but usually are not shorter than three months. Fellows are given a monthly stipend of 5,000 Swiss francs and are provided with medical cover. Additionally WIPO will assist with travel and visa arrangements.

 

Please note that the 2021 edition of the Program is taking place subject to the conditions prevailing with the COVID-19 pandemic. Successful applicants would likely not begin their Fellowship with WIPO before autumn 2021. In addition, we would like to inform applicants that WIPO staff and hence also Fellows are currently (February 2021) working from home within the Geneva area, rather than in the office at WIPO. It is not yet known when this situation may change, since it depends on the evolution of the pandemic.
