PGR Internships

PGR Opportunities Hub Internships

The PGR Opportunities Hub offers a range of internship opportunities to our postgraduate research students. These internships are paid, part-time opportunities and are designed to provide relevant workplace experience whilst supporting our students to develop a range of key transferable skills, in line with Domains B and D of the Researcher Development Framework‌. 

The internships are to support academic and professional services staff across the College with exciting and innovative research, student experience and learning and teaching initiatives. 

All PGR internship positions are advertised via the Internship Hub. Although RDP internships are generally located within specific schools, they are open to applications from any postgraduate research students from across the College of Social Sciences. Look for opportunities which state "Desired degree discipline: Any PhD College of Social Sciences". Most opportunities are advertised in semester 1. Sign up now for internship hub opportunity alerts to ensure you don't miss out.
