Are you interested in pursuing an internship, and are you funded by either EPSRC or ESRC? The Careers Service are running an information session to explain how the EPSRC and ESRC postdoc internship schemes work and how you can get involved.
 
The pilot postdoc internship scheme is designed to facilitate and encourage postdocs to seek work experience outside of their research group.
 
Funding is available to cover your salary while you spend some time in a different working environment - ideally related to research funded by these research councils, or related to the discipline. For example, you might seek experience in a company working on similar technology, or find an organisation where you can discover how your research might be translated into policy.
 
To help you find opportunities, and learn about how to make the most of a short internship in your career planning, Liz Simmonds will be offering this introductory session covering how the scheme will work, and how you can get involved.
