The Royal Institution (Ri) is looking for nine Phd students to join us for a three-month internship across four different teams within the Ri: CHRISTMAS LECTURES (x1), Digital Media (x4), Marketing & Communications (x1) and the Young Scientist Centre (x3). These placements are ideal for students interested in science education and communication, and education outreach.
For more information on any of these internships please see the attached job descriptions. Closing dates and timeframes for interview are advertised on our website here: PhD Internships 2023 to 2024 (x9) | Royal Institution (rigb.org)
To apply, please send a current CV to email@example.com by the closing date specified in the associated job description, along with a supporting statement, no more than 500 words, explaining why you are interested in the internship and why we should consider you for the placement.
Please note, the Ri offers placements for students who are enrolled on a research degree under the Doctoral Training Partnership programme funded by Research Councils including the BBSRC, EPSRC, ESRC, MRC, AHRC and NERC. These opportunities are only open to PhD students who are eligible for a stipend via their DTP/University/research council in order to undertake a three month professional internship. Students should check with their university that they are able to secure funding before applying. They will need to obtain the grant holder’s written permission to undertake the placement, outlining any funding arrangements, before a position can be offered.
All roles are based in Central London, with a mix of home and office working; students will be expected to base themselves within or near to London for the period of the placement.
