LAEL Research Internships 2017-2018 have officially opened

LAEL Research Internships 2017-18 now open for applications.

Closing date midnight 4th December 2017

LAEL offers two research internship programmes open to Part II students.

You can apply for a maximum of two different research internship projects (i.e. two SPRINT projects, or two TRINITY projects, or one SPRINT and one TRINITY).

SPRINT (Summer Project Research Internships) involves you working with a member of staff on a research project for four weeks in either June or July 2018.

  • SPRINT students will be paid £1,625 for their work.
  • There are two SPRINT projects available to students who will finish their second year in summer 2018.
  • Students must be majoring in Linguistics and/or English Language.
  • These are the SPRINT projects available for 2017-2018 (choice of six).
  • We are hoping to receive funding to reserve additional SPRINT projects for students from a Widening Participation background.

TRINITY (Term-time Internships) involves you working one day per week with a member of staff on a research project in Term 2 2018.

  • TRINITY students will be paid £812.50 for their work.
  • There are two TRINITY projects available to second or third year students who have not previously completed a LAEL research internship.
  • Students must be majoring in Linguistics and/or English Language.
  • One TRINITY project is reserved for students from a Widening Participation background.
  • You must meet one of these criteria to be considered for the Widening Participation funding.
  • These are the TRINITY projects available for 2017-2018 (choice of five).

All applications must be emailed to Claire Nance c.nance@lancaster.ac.uk by midnight on 4th December 2017.

Here is the application form.

Note that you may not yet have your marks back for your Term One work. It is sensible to wait until you have as much information as you can before submitting your form, but of course, don’t leave it till after the deadline!

You will hear about the outcome of your application before Christmas 2017.
