Micro Internship programme for research staff

Are you a researcher looking for career development? Our new Micro-Internship Programme for Research Staff could be for you!

All postdocs and research staff are encouraged to take dedicated time for professional development of their choosing within their contracted time according to University of Oxford policy. Micro-internships are 2-5 day voluntary work experience placements facilitated by the University and this new pilot programme is designed especially for research staff at grade 6 or above, who are currently on a fixed term contract at Oxford or who finished their fixed term contract in the past 12 months.

We have a wide variety of placements on offer in sectors including health, environment, photography & graphics, ethics, law, technology, computing and financial services. 

To apply you will need to register with CareerConnect if you have not done so already. Once you have found a micro-internship you wish to apply for, just follow the link alongside the opportunity and you will be directed to the relevant application page. For full details of the scheme visit our
Micro-Internships for Research Staff webpage.

If you would like any advice on your application to the programme, please book a 15 minute 1:1 support session with our Careers Advisers via CareerConnect. Our Careers Advisers are on hand to discuss your application in detail and provide feedback on both your CV and personal statement.

The deadline for making an application is 12pm midday Monday 1 April
