ESRC announces internships for ESRC-funded students.

The Research Council Policy Internships scheme provides the opportunity for research council-funded PhD students to work for three months in one of a selected group of highly influential policy organisations.

The internship scheme significantly contributes to the skills and professional development of PhD students. Benefits include the opportunity to network within the policy arena and develop a range of transferable skills and knowledge such as report writing and time management. Hosts also benefit from the additional resource provided by students and help in the production of briefing papers and contribution to the organisation's policy evidence base.

Students gain an extension to their ESRC award and are able to claim for travel and accommodation costs.

Closing date for applications is 16.00 on 1 September 2016.

Further information, including details of the available positions and projects, can be found on the ESRC website. Interested students are encouraged to not delay discussing this with their supervisor(s) and the SGSSS director.
