We are pleased to announce that London NERC DTP has been awarded funding as part of the UK National Productivity Investment Fund (NPIF) to host Innovation Internships in 2019.
These fully-funded 3-month placements are intended to enable and encourage PhD students to explore impact from their research and develop links between academia and industry, sharing knowledge and skills, and increasing mobility and flow of talent between these sectors. The placement projects all include links with the UK Industrial Strategy. The internships must be completed within the 2018/19 academic year.
The deadline for applications is the 4th March 2019.
DEADLINE EXTENDED: 29th March 2019
These internships are available to current London NERC DTP students in cohorts 2*, 3 and 4, and to NERC-funded PhD students in their second or third year. Post-doctoral internships are also available for student who have completed their PhD in the last 6 months. Preference will be given to London NERC DTP students and students from the DTP partner institutions.
