Internships & Opportunities

The MRC DTP anticipates our students will contribute to society and the economy through successful careers in a variety of roles across job sectors. We encourage and support our students to develop a wide range of skills and abilities. To enable professional development the DTP works closely with organisations such as the Cabinet Office and The Academy of Medical Sciences to provide internship and placement opportunities for our students.

Current Opportunities

3 month internship opportunities available in the Communications Team – further details to be shared very soon!

The Royal Institution (Ri) are looking for an intern to start in late September to assist the Ri team with administering and delivering its programme of masterclasses. This placement will involve working with the Ri during its busiest and most exciting time of year and would be ideal for anyone interested in learning more about maths enrichment activities in an educational setting, and STEM communication more generally. It is a full-time 12 week placement working Tuesday to Saturday, based in Central London with the requirement to travel to Masterclass sessions in London and the South East. Students will therefore be expected to base themselves within or near to London for the period of the placement. The closing date for receipt of applications is midnight on Monday 1 July and interviews are scheduled to be held on Thursday 11 July. Please find the job description here.
