These internships provide an opportunity to work for three months in one of a selected group of highly influential policy organisations.
NERC, in collaboration with the Biotechnology & Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC), organise internship placements for current NERC, BBSRC and AHRC funded PhD students to work in one of eight host organisations on a policy topic relevant to both the student and the host. The student will be expected to produce a briefing paper, participate in a policy inquiry and/or organise a policy event. Internships are awarded to both parliamentary and non-parliamentary organisations. Further information and details of how to apply can be found at the following link – http://www.nerc.ac.uk/funding/available/postgrad/advanced/policy-interns/
NERC, BBSRC and AHRC-funded PhD students who are interested in the scheme should apply by the deadline of 16:00 on 18 August 2014.
