Page 1: LISS DTP Research Assistant Internships Proposal Form

LISS DTP invites colleagues who make a contribution to its provision (e.g. supervisors, pathway leads, methods course conveners, conveners of pathway activities) to apply for an internship (through the provision of a 3 month extension) that allows a LISS DTP funded PhD student to work as Research Assistant with an academic (other than their immediate supervisor) based at King’s, Queen Mary or Imperial. Colleagues must be able to demonstrate how the intern will benefit; for example, working with a larger team of researchers, academic writing practice, training in research methods, networking and dissemination, collaboration with external partners, and potential for publication.

Please complete the application form below. The information supplied will be used by the LISS DTP Director and a selection panel to approve proposals. These will be advertised on the LISS DTP website and other media. Successful colleagues should also publicise the internship through their own channels. The academic lead will be responsible for selecting the student (who must be LISS DTP funded).  Once selected, the student should apply for an internship extension via the form at so that the appropriate changes to funding records can be made.

Applications can be made at any time but are reviewed bi-annually. The next review will be at the end of June 2021.  Applications should be submitted by the 15th June 2021 for consideration at the end of June.
