Policy Internships

Internships at the Centre for Science and Policy

Policy internships

CSaP works with the Doctoral Training Partnerships at Cambridge to recruit PhD students who would like to do a policy internship and learn more about the relationship between research, evidence and policy making.

Internships are for three months full time and offer students a unique career development opportunity, giving them the necessary skills and confidence to work outside their own area of expertise, and as part of a team.

Our interns organise and take part in policy workshops, write and edit policy reports for non-expert audiences, produce news articles for our website, and meet with our Policy Fellows. At the end of the internship, students will have gained a better understanding of the role of science and evidence in policy making, and the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to solving problems in health, climate, food security and much more.

If you are a PhD student interested in doing an internship at CSaP, please email Jackie Ouchikh, CSaP Head of Programmes.
