The Research Councils UK invite applications from influential policy organisations to join the RCUK Policy Internship scheme in the capacity of a hosting partner for the 2017/18 and 2018/19 competitions.

The RCUK Policy Internship scheme provides the opportunity for Research Council funded PhD students to undertake a three month placement at the partner of their choice working on one or more policy topics of interest to both the student and the organisation, by producing at least one briefing paper, participating in a policy inquiry and/or organising a policy event.

Hosting partner applications will be assessed by a group of Research Council representatives involved in the RCUK Policy Internship Scheme, with successful applicants contacted via email by the end of May 2017.
