With the support of Generic Skills Funding, the Institutes offered their first paid internships to PhD students in 2013-14. The scheme has been successfully continued since and we currently have four PhD students currently in posts within the BIH and the BISR.

About the Internship Programme

The internship provides an extensive training programme covering the entire process of disseminating research across multiple platform, helping you to develop invaluable generic skills that will contribute to your future academic career. Many of our public events take place during evenings and weekends, and so some flexible working is required, but all working patterns will be agreed in advance. Only current Birkbeck PhD students can apply for the Internship.

A key part of the internship is the organisation of the annual Birkbeck Institute Graduate Conference, which is now underway. This page will be updated with details on the 2019 conference as they are announced.

Our Interns

This year we are excited to welcome Ama Josephine Budget and Lise Grønvold to the Institutes team.
