RKE Internships 2016 – call for applications now open

The 2016 student internship scheme is now open to applications.

Academic staff can apply for an intern to work with them on a relevant and clearly defined research and knowledge exchange project, creating capacity to carry out research and knowledge exchange activity in areas that are likely to result in tangible outputs.

These projects will give students experience of working with staff on real research and knowledge exchange projects with high quality outcomes.

Proposals are welcomed from staff across all disciplines and research areas.  You should demonstrate how external partners will be engaged through the design, delivery, and/or dissemination of the project.

The internships will take place between May and August 2016.

Closing date 12 February 2016

Application forms and guidance are available on the RED Website or by emailing red.businessdevelopment@canterbury.ac.uk.

For further information contact Amanda Hutson at red.businessdevelopment@canterbury.ac.uk.
