The Royal Institution is world-renowned as the home of science and we are now looking for a PhD student to take on an internship with us as Science Engagement Intern to join our Schools Programme for a 3-month placement to gain experience of education outreach and science communication. The internship is from end of February to end of June 2022.
The Science Engagement Intern will lead on the launch of the new ‘Faraday Box’ pilot scheme to develop partnerships with our local school communities.
I am attaching the job description for the internship in PDF (for sending out to students as necessary).
For more information about our internship programme and details on individual placements, timeframes and how to apply, please direct students to our website via this link: https://www.rigb.org/about/work-with-us/programme-placements/phd-internships
The closing date for receipt of applications is 9.00am on Wednesday 12 January.
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 12 week 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.
The role is 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.
