Apply for internships and placements

We have internship and placement opportunities across UKRI. Current vacancies are listed below.

BBSRC: professional internships for PhD students

Work placements are available for BBSRC-funded PhD students under the Doctoral Training Partnership programme.

You should be interested in gaining work experience at BBSRC’s Swindon office in:

  • corporate policy and strategy
  • science and innovation policy
  • public engagement
  • project management.

You can gain work experience unrelated to your PhD through a three-month professional work placement at BBSRC.

There are up to eight placements available each year at our offices in Swindon.

Placements are awarded on a competitive basis. You must first email to express an interest.


We will send you details of potential internship projects, how to apply and our assessment process.
