Applications are now open to STFC-funded doctoral students to take part in the UKRI Policy Internship Placement Scheme.
The Policy Internship Placement scheme provides an opportunity for STFC-funded doctoral students to undertake a three-month placement at either the Government Office for Science or the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology.
During their internship, the student undertakes work on a policy topic agreed with their host partner that is relevant to both parties. At the end of the internship, the student is expected to have:
• produced a briefing paper
• participated in a policy inquiry and, or
• organised a policy event
The intention of the scheme is to embed students in an environment where they can engage with the process of converting research outputs into policy. These internships equip students with transferable skills and training relevant to the future career paths that the student may choose.
The closing date is 4 November 2022 16:00 UK time. For more information and how to apply, visit: https://www.ukri.org/what-we-offer/developing-people-and-skills/find-studentships-and-doctoral-training/get-training-and-development-to-support-your-doctorate/ukri-policy-internships/
