The research councils organise internships for current research council-funded PhD students to work in highly impactful host organisations on one or more policy topics relevant to both the student and the host. The student will be expected to produce at least one briefing paper, participate in a policy inquiry and/or organise a policy event, or equivalent piece of work.
Internships are awarded to a number of parliamentary departments, government departments and non-governmental bodies, learned societies and other organisations. For details of current hosting partners, and further information on the scheme and how to apply, please see the UK Research and Innovation Policy Internship webpage
