NERC: Business and policy internships - marine renewable energy
The NERC has launched a call for internships, inviting existing researchers to apply for projects of up to four months, based in businesses, policy or third sector organisations.
Interns will explore and demonstrate how business, policy or third sector partners in the area of Marine Renewable Energy can make use of scientific knowledge, data, models or other tools to understand and manage their impacts and/or dependencies on the environment. Projects may involve one or more business, policy or third sector partner and one or more researchers. Applications will be welcomed in the areas of:
• Underwater noise
• Data access and Management
• Uncertainty and Risk
• Cost effective monitoring
• Cumulative impact assessment
Internships may last up to four months and should be completed by the end of March 2013.
Eligibility: The internships are particularly suited to early career researchers, who are either nearing the end of or have recently completed their PhD and are able to embed NERC funded research into a business or third sector environment (please note current PhD students would normally be expected to be at least in their second year of research).
Funding: NERC will invest £200,000 in this scheme and anticipates funding 5-10 internships.
Deadline: Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until the funding has been allocated, or by 17:00 on 26th October 2012.
