Paid Summer Internships for Undergraduate Students

The NERC SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training is currently advertising ten paid summer internships for undergraduate students with supervisory teams at the University of Edinburgh and University of Leeds.

These internships will allow talented individuals to explore how using satellite data and machine learning/AI techniques can monitor and attempt to tackle environmental problems.

These internships would be ideal for an undergraduate student heading into their final year of study who is considering a research career and wants to gain experience and mentoring to support this.

In additional successful completion of an internship with SENSE will guarantee an interview for a PhD studentship with SENSE for 2022.

The internships:

  • Are six weeks in length to be completed during the summer vacation period (including four day paid leave).
  • Paid at UE03 (£345.38 per week).
  • Will be completed by remote working (i.e. intern can be located anywhere in the UK).
  • Will allow the intern to gain research experience and receive mentoring from the SENSE CDT team to support their future PhD applications.

Applications are welcome from students in any science discipline (including engineering, computing, mathematics, geosciences) however you cannot apply for an internship in the department you are currently studying in.
