Scientific Internship: The ‘Scientific Internship’ is Not a Job

Posted June 29, 2018 06:21:51This summer, I’ll be joining the prestigious Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Newcastle.

I’m excited to work in the department and have a great opportunity to explore how the world views the role of the scientist.

In the department, we have a broad range of scientific research interests, from the development of animal and plant models of human behaviour to the interpretation of molecular biology data to the development and implementation of scientific and public policy initiatives.

I’ll be working alongside the department’s scientists and researchers to provide support for their projects, and also providing input to our scientific and policy work.

At the same time, I will be supporting my research with a variety of academic and professional opportunities.

As an undergrad, I’ve been studying plant biology and my work has been recognised in the UK scientific literature, and the University has awarded me research fellowships, funding and scholarships.

This summer I’m looking forward to doing some of the things I’ve always wanted to do and being involved in the research I’ve so much loved.

It’s an exciting opportunity to work with my fellow students, with a broad variety of exciting projects.

I can’t wait to get started!

A special thanks to all the students, staff and researchers who have been working hard to make this summer such a successful one.

More to come.
