BBSRC PIPS Internship: Biological resources and their impact on the UK research community

Based in BBSRC Swindon Office. Apply by 20 June.

Within UKRI BBSRC’s Science Strategy Group there is an exciting opportunity for a Professional Internship for PhD Students (PIPS) placement to develop case studies showcasing the impact our funding of resources (e.g. via the Bioinformatics and Biological Resources Fund) has on the UK bioscience community.

There is an opportunity for a PIPS intern to identify and investigate high-profile examples of resource funding supported by BBSRC and showcasing their impact on the bioscience community, creating effective digital content for internal and potentially external communication. The internship will provide the PIPS with the opportunity to improve their skills in analysing complex data sets, communicating with a broad range of audiences (e.g. current grant holders and resource users), as well as drafting and designing effective case studies targeted towards the desired audience. The role will be located in our Science Strategy Group but will be supported by the Impact Evidence Team, providing a unique opportunity to learn about the work undertaken across the organisation.
