The Royal Institution (Ri) has the following internship opportunities for PhD students:
- Three places in its L’Oreal Young Scientist Centre (LYSC) for a three month internship to gain experience in science communication and engagement. These internships will run consecutively from February to October 2023 with some flexibility around exact start dates for the right candidates.
- One place in its Family Programmes team in January 2023. The Family Programme is core to how Ri engages with the general public with science.
Please find attached job descriptions containing more detail for both internships for you to distribute to students as necessary.

Please note, the Ri offers placements for students who are enrolled on a research degree under the Doctoral Training Partnership programme. These opportunities are only open to PhD students who are eligible for a stipend via their DTP/University/research council in order to undertake a three month professional internship. Students should check with their university that they are able to secure funding before applying. They will need to obtain the grant holder’s written permission to undertake the placement, outlining any funding arrangements, before a position can be offered.
All roles are based in Central London, with a mix of home and office working; students will be expected to base themselves within or near to London for the period of the placement.
