Learning Through Research Internships 2020
04 Dec 2019
Researchers are invited to submit internship proposals for funded internships
Following on from the successful launch of the research internships strand of the Student Experience Internship (SEI) programme in 2018, the Careers Service is pleased to announce that internship proposals are now being accepted for the Learning Through Research Internships programme for 2020.
Designed for penultimate year undergraduates, the objective of the Learning Through Research Internships is to provide students with an insight into the work of academic researchers plus an informed understanding of some of the key issues shaping contemporary research.
The aim is to have a high proportion of Widening Participation students participating, helping this group of students in particular to gain an insight to a career that they may not normally have, nor consider.
Thanks to a merged endowment there is funding to pay the students for an eight week internship period. Students will also be supported through a weekly development programme of workshops.
We are now seeking proposals for Learning Through Research Internships for next summer, aiming for the internships to start in June or July 2020.*
To be considered for funding the proposals must be submitted by Friday 24 January 2020. If you are leading a research project and would welcome some additional researcher support over the summer vacation, we would very much like to hear from you.
*We would strongly recommend that interns start their internships during the first week of the month due to the payment deadlines of the casual staff system at The University Further information will be available when these deadlines are released early next year.
