The Scottish Graduate School of Social Science (SGSSS) runs a professional internship scheme for PhD students at Scotland’s universities in their second and third years of study. PhD internships enable organisations to access the talent of an early career social science researcher for a three month period to deliver a specific piece of work whilst developing a range of transferable skills for our researchers.

Our current partners include the Scottish Government, Skills Development Scotland, Healthcare Improvement Scotland and Firstport.

Applications now open for Internships starting September 2018 onwards! To view current opportunities, please click here.
