Applications are now open for summer research internships at the Faculty of Theology and Religion in the University of Oxford.

The McDonald Centre's Postdoctoral Fellow, Dr. Edward David, is hosting two exciting projects on Gen Z's religious and spiritual role models, and on religious madness in the Age of the Asylum, each of which will need at least one research intern. 

What is a UNIQ+ Internship?

UNIQ+ research internships are designed to provide students from under-represented and disadvantaged backgrounds who are ordinarily resident in the UK with the opportunity to experience postgraduate study.

Taking place from Monday 1 July – Friday 16 August 2024, UNIQ+ gives you the chance to experience life as a graduate student at Oxford. You will undertake a research project, attend training and information sessions, and have the opportunity to take part in social events. Projects are available in a wide range of subjects, including archaeology, biology, history, engineering, pathology, sociology and statistics, and many more.


During the internship you’ll:

  • receive a stipend of £3,000
  • receive free accommodation in Oxford
  • improve your research skills
  • work with University of Oxford researchers (me!)
  • receive advice on opportunities for further study and research careers
  • enhance your ability to make a competitive application for postgraduate study
