Find out more about our 12 week internships for PhD Students
The Ri offers placements for students who are enrolled on a research degree under the Doctoral Training Partnership programme funded by Research Councils including (but not exclusive to) BBSRC, EPSRC, ESRC, AHRC, MRC and NERC.
These internships are full-time, for 12 weeks and are funded via a Stipend from the DTP.
The Ri currently offers two regular internships between October and January every year, to deliver the world famous CHRISTMAS LECTURES. We also take on an intern to work within our Digital Media team and may be able to offer placements at other times of the year if we have suitable projects available.
If you wish to discuss undertaking your PhD internship with the Ri, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
