The SGSAH Doctoral Internship & Residency Scheme allows PhD students to contribute their skills & generate real value through substantial work for an external organisation whilst growing their networks & developing practical knowledge exchange & public engagement expertise.
Our hosts say:
“Our intern was a joy to have & fitted in to the department very well. He asked all the relevant questions & took on board the way we work. He also was proactive & enjoyed being part of the team.” Sharon Mair, BBC Radio Scotland
Our interns say:
“One of my main achievements was being able to use my own experience & knowledge gained through working with the host to offer suggestions as to how my recommendations could be realised to offer the best service, in the most cost effective manner possible.’’
These paid opportunities are open to ANY arts & humanities PhD student at any SGSAH member HEI who is in their 2nd year or above full-time equivalent as of 1 October 2016. Pay will be at RCUK stipend rates, pro-rata.
