Internship applications now open for April 2013
14 January 2013
This is an opportunity for you as an intern to spend time working in an influential research body, and for us to benefit from the skills you can bring. An internship at the Constitution Unit is an ideal way for recent graduates to gain experience of work in a think which is also an academic research centre, and to do research which is link to policy.
Past interns have included students in their holidays, postgraduates thinking about continuing their studies to Masters or PhD level, and civil and public servants who work for us part-time or on secondment.
Each intern is assigned to one of our researchers to assist them with a single project throughout their three months internship. This gives interns the opportunity to build a close working relationship with their supervisor, get a real feel for the day-to-day process of academic research, give the intern’s research skills a more practical edge and to have real responsibility and independence over their tasks
The work is varied and will be assigned to reflect peoples skills and areas of interest. We invite the interns to come to our team meetings, contribute to our publications, newsletter and blog, and the whole team work together to organise our regular events and seminars. They get a real taste of what academic and policy research is like, and make an important contribution to our research projects. In return we will provide interns with extra skills, careers advice, and a reference for when they leave.
Those wishing to join our team should refer to the research currently undertaken at the Unit.
