Birkbeck Institute Internships

The Birkbeck Institute for Social Research (BISR) and the Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities (BIH) host events and provides resources to support researchers and to enhance research in the social sciences and humanities within Birkbeck and the wider Bloomsbury area. Each year the two Institutes host a range of diverse seminars, workshops, colloquia and conferences and participation in the organisation of these is highly beneficial to those involved as it builds networks, develops a range of skills and builds confidence.

With the support of Generic Skills Funding, BISR offered its first paid internships to PhD students in 2013-14. The scheme has been successfully continued since and we currently have four PhD students currently in post across BISR and BIH. Through their internship they gain valuable experience in the organisation, promotion and hosting of academic seminars, workshops and conferences, including the Birkbeck Institute Graduate Conference.
