Summer Research Internship Scheme – Open to Applications

The 2015 student internship scheme is currently open to applications.  The deadline for applications is 30th January 2015.

Academic staff can apply for an intern to work with them on a relevant and clearly-defined 10-week research or knowledge exchange project.  These projects should result in tangible, high-quality outputs.

Internships run from May to August 2015. Interns are funded up to £200 per week for a maximum of ten weeks and can work for up to 21 hours per week.

Proposals should set out how projects will engage external partners either through the design, delivery, dissemination or impact of the project. The funding comes from the central HEIF allocation and is administered by RED.

We anticipate that 20 research internships will be funded in this round.

How to Apply

The scheme is open to all CCCU staff engaged with teaching, research and knowledge exchange activity. Applications are welcome from all disciplines and research areas.

Applications forms are available from the RED web pages.
