2 day Paid Internship Opportunity – to start ASAP

King's Research Consultancy (150x50)The Project

This is a desk-based project to compare the levels and learning outcomes of modules from King’s, the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and Arizona State University (ASU) in Public Health, Global Health and Social Medicine. The project will require the researcher to interrogate the information which is currently held by the Project Manager.

The key deliverable for this project will be a report highlighting what is comparable between King’s global / public health modules and programmes, and those on offer from PLuS partners ASU and UNSW.

No travel will be required for this project. The work can be completed remotely, but could also be based out of the International office (Strand campus) based on the candidate’s preferences.

The outcome for this piece of work will be an understanding of how existing modules might fit together to form a new joint undergraduate degree offering in public health, and where there are gaps.

Person Specification

  • You must be a current, post upgrade PhD student at King’s College London
  • Good analytical skills are essential
  • You must be able to start ASAP

Further details and how to apply

The project will commence ASAP and will consist of 2 days’ work. The consultant will be paid £125 per day.

Paid Academic Practice Opportunities with King’s Experience

King’s Experience is offering paid academic practice opportunities to postgraduates at King’s in 2013-14.

King’s Experience is overseeing the assessment of three non-academic credit bearing awards in 2013-14: the King’s Global Award and the King’s London Award (both run by King’s Experience), and the King’s Leadership Award (run by King’s Experience in partnership with KCLSU and the Careers dept).

The role involves marking assessments. Training will be provided. Furthermore, the role attracts a payment of £300.

The two training sessions scheduled for 2013-14 are on 6 November 2013, and 5 February 2014, and you will need to be available for one of these dates.

King’s Awards are innovative. For example participants on the King’s Global Award and King’s London Award can submit an essay for their assessment but they can also submit a business plan, or an academic poster, or publish a website. A receptive approach to innovative assessments will therefore be an asset for this role.

If you are interested in taking up this opportunity provided by King’s Experience, please visit their website for more details (http://www.kcl.ac.uk/kep). The website is where you can also download the application form, including the essential and desirable criteria for the role. The deadline for applications is Friday 4th October 2013.
