White Rose Low Res 111A key part of the White Rose BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership in Mechanistic Biology and Strategic Applications is for all our students to undertake a Professional Internship for PhD Students. The aspiration of the internship is to give students non-academic work experience opportunities (currently only 14% of PhD students pursue academic careers), enabling students to explore the context of their research, investigate a range of career opportunities open to them following graduation and to demonstrate how their research and professional skills can make a positive contribution to science and society outside of academia.
