Are you undertaking a PhD in the UK? Are you passionate about antimicrobial resistance, One Health, and the policy implications of infectious disease? Then apply for our Parliamentary Internship Programme and help bring AMR back into the political limelight!

The British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy (BSAC) is once again inviting students undertaking a PhD in the UK to apply to our Parliamentary Internship Programme.

Starting in September 2024, successful candidates will have the opportunity to engage directly with the inner workings of government. Working with Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle, they will help to identify and agree on areas of forthcoming business, providing research support, written briefings or summaries, preparation for committees and support to all aspects of the Lords.

To gain a better idea of what this internship might involve, as well as to see testimonies from our current cohort of interns, please consult this article and this article.

The internship is fully remunerated via BSAC payroll at the rate of National Living Wage (currently £11.44/hour). It will be carried out for 7 hours per week (0.2 FTE) alongside academic studies; to allow for maximum flexibility, the programme is scheduled to run for six months with the potential to extend for a further six months following a review.

This is an ideal opportunity for candidates looking to bring their academic studies to life by developing knowledge and skills while gaining invaluable experiences and contacts.

Full details, including a job description and person specification are available here: 2024-Parliamentary-Internship-Job-Pack-Final.

All applications and enquiries should be directed to Dr Paul-Enguerrand Fady, BSAC’s Policy Research Lead, via pefady@bsac.org.uk
