Internships at the Office of National Statistics

The ONS Public Policy Analysis Division in Newport has three Internship opportunities, and is working directly with DTCs to offer the Internships to ESRC funded students. The internships are for 6 months each, commence between Autumn 2014 to January 2015.

The titles of the three projects are:

  • Life Expectancy Assignment by Socioeconomic position
  • Developing a new measure of average point score in education
  • Improving and Extending Capital Stock information using micro level business data

Further details are in the attached outline specification (Word document).

In line with the ESRC Internship Scheme, students undertaking the internships would have a six month paid extension to your PhD and reasonable T&S costs will be met. This is an interesting opportunity for students with strong statistical skills.
