Research Discovery Internships Programme: call for supervisors and interns

May 21st, 2024

The Research Discovery Internships Programme (2024-2025) call for supervisors and interns has opened.

The programme is designed to give budding researchers the opportunity to gain hands-on research experience and is open to students from all disciplines. We are committed to the highest standards of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, which are essential to a thriving and ambitious Research Culture.

Successful candidates will receive a stipend for 10h/week throughout the 24/25 academic (30 weeks) at the living wage rate.

For supervisors

As a Research Discovery supervisor, you have the opportunity to provide students with a unique learning experience, mentorship and to potentially create lasting connections with emerging scientists.

Your involvement in this programme will also help diversify the scientific community by supporting students from underrepresented communities.

Research-active colleagues from across the University of Nottingham are encouraged to submit their proposals and help us create an enriching experience for our students.

We expect our interns to work as research assistants, spending 10 hours a week on their project over a period of 30 weeks commencing in September 2024.

Projects should run throughout the academic year, be well-defined, feasible, and offer the opportunity for students to gain valuable experience and knowledge in their field of interest.

Successful projects will also receive financial support (£500 – £1,500) to cover the costs incurred by the interns once in post.

The deadline for submission of your research project is Monday 17 June 2024.

Supervisors can submit a project proposal here.
