Current Opportunities

We are currently looking forward and thinking about ways of developing our collaboration opportunities with non-academic partners in the worlds of public and social policy, business, finance, third sector activity, and beyond.

The Cambridge ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) in the Social Sciences is very much committed to the idea of ‘real world research’ and we want our students to gain experience of working with external partners, however briefly.  We expect DTP students to undertake some form of collaborative activity as part of the their PhD training. We also strongly believe that there can be mutual benefits in such collaboration.


Internship Opportunities - next call

The next call for the Cambridge ESRC (DTP) in the Social Sciences internship opportunities will open for students in January 2018.
