Apply for an NPIF Internship
The London NERC DTP is offering funding for 3-month internships in 2018/19 as part of the UK National Productivity Investment Fund.
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.
