Internship projects for PhD students

This programme is open to PhD students enrolled in the doctoral course “Career Skills for Science”. 

The internship programme started 2011 and has been highly appreciated by both students and companies. Our internship programme for PhD students at Karolinska Instituet aims at giving companies the opportunity to offer an internship for a period of one month. KI covers the salary for the whole period.

The programme starts in mid-March and ends in late Ocotber every year. We offer up to 20 internship projects.

How to apply

In short, the companies presents a project plan at a company mingle arranged by Career Service. All PhD students registered at KI and enrolled or previously enrolled in our course Career Skills for Scientists can apply for up to 3 companies/projects after approval of supervisor.

Applications will be submitted to Career Service and after this the companies will interview the candidates and make a selection. Career Service announce the selection of candidates to the applicants.
