Science Policy Internships June 11, 2010

Posted by qmresearchers in Career Ideas.

Q: Are you thinking about what to do after your PhD?

Q: Have you thought about working in Science Policy but are not exactly sure what it is?

Q: Can you afford to take 2 to 3 months out of your PhD? (No way, I hear you cry!)

Q: Can you afford to have a period with no income after your PhD?

If you answered yes to some of the above questions then read on.

I recently noticed that the Society for Biology offers Policy Internships for recent graduates and scientists on career breaks or considering a move into science policy. They offer a structured programme of unpaid work experience, for periods of 8-12 weeks (full-time, or the part-time equivalent), with hands-on experience of delivering a policy project.

Past interns have secured science policy jobs at the RSPB, Wellcome Trust and Academy of Medical Sciences, or have gone on to research or training posts.
