PIPS placement: UK government, deadline 14th June 2024, 11:59pm

The UK government’s Open Innovation Team has opened applications for our PhD Placement Programme 2025 (closing date: 14th June 2024, 11:59pm). PhD placements work on a diverse range of policy projects.

Please see link to their website which contains information about the team, the placement, and how to apply.

Placements are full-time for a three-month period. Students may choose to work remotely and/or in person at our Westminster office. During the placement, students will:

  • make significant contributions to the policy work the team carries out;
  • help plan and deliver our events, bringing together academic experts and policymakers to work through policy problems;
  • assess and synthesise expert evidence and research, and learn how to present this for policymaking audiences.

All the PhD placement work aims to build student’s skills and provide them with an insight to what it’s like to work on policy and in government. We’ve hosted more than 150 students since 2016, with more than 30 former students going on to work in policy jobs.
