Welsh Government Internship Opportunities

Deadline: Friday 30 July 2021

The DTP is pleased to offer sixteen internship opportunities with the Welsh Government.  These are open to any ESRC Wales DTP funded student (except those within 3 months of the start or end of their studentship).  It is anticipated that the internships will be conducted remotely, commencing in September 2021, for a period of 3 months full-time or the part-time equivalent.  Successful applicants will get an extension of 3 months to their PhD (equivalent to the duration of the internship).

These internships will offer opportunities to create impact by contributing to the work of government, the chance to build relationships outside of academia, as well the ability to develop research skills in a policy environment.
