  1. A Curriculum Vitae (2 pages maximum)
  2. A letter of support from an academic supervisor/tutor within your current institute.
  3. An application statement (1 page maximum) describing:
    • Why you wish to perform an internship within ACCIS, clearly describing your specific areas of interest and how they align with our own current research activities.
    • How long you wish the internship to be (this must be a minimum of 3 months and a maximum of 1 year).
    • How the internship will benefit your own personal development and career aspirations (e.g. it will add value to a current MSc project and/or it will enable an insight to potential PhD research opportunities).

Selection is highly competitive, so please only apply if you have a genuine interest in a specific area of ACCIS research and can demonstrate the necessary knowledge and skills to achieve valuable research outcomes during the course of your internship. Available funding for internships is limited so we can only offer a small number of such placements. Applicants able to provide full or partial funding from alternative sources are encouraged.

Application documentation as listed above should be submitted by email:
