Graduate Research Opportunities

Helen Brooks (cohort 3, Geography) has been awarded a RCUK Policy Placement with the Centre for Science and Policy (CSaP).

Policy internships offer current research council-funded PhD students the opportunity to work in highly impactful host organisations on one or more policy topics relevant to both the student and the host. The student will be expected to produce at least one briefing paper, participate in a policy inquiry and/or organise a policy event, or equivalent piece of work. (from the NERC website)

Congratulations Helen, we look forward to hearing more about your policy placement experience!
