SGSSS Internships now open for applications

We are now inviting applications for Spring Term internships in 2020


Paid opportunities are available with Healthcare Improvement Scotland, Scottish Government and OFCOM.

Internships help develop transferable skills, research skills and sector knowledge. They can enhance employability, build networks, and support future employment within or beyond academia.

Please see our current opportunities page for full details of internships available, the deadline for applications, and eligibility criteria.

Three reasons you should consider an internship in 2020 …

  1. Internship outputs can help develop impact for your research – and lead to publication and prizes!
  2. Doing an internship can open up new career paths and enhance employability – former SGSSS interns have secured permanent employment after their PhD
  3. If you invest time in your application, you have a good chance of success – 86% of eligible applicants were offered an Autumn Term internship, and there are plenty of opportunities to go round

View opportunities and apply now! The deadline to apply is Monday 24 February.

Find out more. SGSSS will be hosting live web chats on Wednesday 12 February and Wednesday 19 February. If you would like to join, please email and ask Anna-Marie to sign up.

“The internship has changed my perspective on future career plans. I now understand that there are other environments where you can utilise your research skills outside academia. I’ve really enjoyed working in government and would now definitely consider this as a good option for a future career.”
