Sprin­ger Nature AG & Co. KGaA

Sprin­ger Nature is a major new force in sci­en­ti­fic, scho­l­arly, pro­fes­sio­nal and edu­ca­tio­nal publi­shing. By using its com­bi­ned exper­tise, scale and the reach of our brands, the com­pany aims to grow and inno­vate in order to bet­ter serve aca­de­mic rese­ar­chers, stu­dents, tea­chers, insti­tu­ti­ons, pro­fes­sio­nals and the wider public, by hel­ping them dis­co­ver more. Sprin­ger Nature was crea­ted through the com­bi­na­tion of Nature Publi­shing Group, Pal­grave Mac­mil­lan, Mac­mil­lan Edu­ca­tion and Sprin­ger Sci­ence+Busi­ness Media in May 2015. This stra­te­gic mer­ger brought tog­e­ther these dyna­mic publi­shing houses with more than 150 years of history behind them, as well as com­ple­men­tary geo­gra­phic foot­prints and brand port­fo­lios, a track record of crea­ti­vity and inno­va­tion, and a sha­red vision to advance know­ledge and lear­ning around the world. The com­pany num­bers almost 13,000 staff in over 50 coun­tries and has a tur­no­ver of EURO 1.5 bil­lion.

Sprin­ger Nature’s Indian sub­si­dia­ries, Sprin­ger Nature Tech­no­logy and Publi­shing Solu­ti­ons (SNTPS) in Pune and Sci­en­ti­fic Publi­shing Ser­vices (SPS), based in Chen­nai, are lea­ders in the pre-media field. Both com­pa­nies offer ser­vices such as pro­ject manage­ment, typeset­ting for books, perio­di­cals and jour­nals, image pro­ces­sing design and pre-prin­ting solu­ti­ons for all areas of the publi­shing indus­try. SNTPS and SPS are vital part­ners for print and online publi­shing in Eng­lish, Ger­man and Dutch.

Our sub­si­dia­ries offer a selec­ted group of open-min­ded stu­dents and uni­ver­sity gra­dua­tes internships at SNTPS/SPS, giving them the oppor­tu­nity to gain fasci­na­ting insights into busi­ness and cul­ture in India. By inte­gra­ting interns into working life in India, we con­tri­bute to inter­cul­tu­ral under­stan­ding, a goal which is also sup­por­ted by par­ti­ci­pa­tion in a social deve­lop­ment pro­ject.

The Cross-Cul­tu­ral Internship Pro­gram, set up in 2006, is uni­que in the publi­shing indus­try.

We are loo­king for:
STU­DENTS/UNI­VER­SITY GRA­DUA­TES (m/f/d) from the areas print pro­duc­tion, print and media tech­no­logy, digi­tal media, media design/media stu­dies, gra­phic design, infor­ma­tics or the huma­nities, such as Ger­man/Dutch stu­dies or Indo­logy.
