Internships

The Cambridge Social Science Partnership invites applications to its Michaelmas 2018 PhD internship scheme.

Opportunities have been selected to support teams based across a range of sectors to carry out a number of projects and activities, whilst also providing unique professional development opportunities for PhD researchers. It is not necessary for the project to relate directly to the student’s PhD topic or specific research interests. Rather, we see these placements as a means to develop and apply transferrable research, communications and analytical skills outside the university sector. 

All opportunities are open to the Cambridge ESRC DTP and the wider social sciences PhD and post docs in Cambridge, including PhD students that just submitted their thesis. 

Under the current Call, internships are available with the following partners/project areas:
