In the past few weeks, a couple of students have approached me asking if I would be willing to take them on as a summer intern. I scrabbled around to gather some information on the sort of scheme that these students were after.
Here are my summer internship pass-notes:
- Typically they offer £180-£200 per week to the student to engage in a research 6-10 week project during their summer holidays.
- Whilst students should liaise with their proposed PI during the application process, they are generally expected to write the application.
- Students considering internships should be interested in pursuing research as a career after the completion of their degree and should be on course for a solid 2i or 1st class degree.
- Closing dates tend for the various schemes tend to be towards the end of February/March.
Here are some links to schemes I am aware of that would be particularly suitable for me as PI, along with some points specific to each:
