After completion of an MSc, PhD or Postdoctoral Fellowship, the MacDiarmid Institute offers three to six month internships to graduates to enable them to gain experience in the field.
We have a comprehensive network of companies, start-ups, NGOs and government agencies with which we place graduates so they can experience working on real industry problems.
The companies and agencies involved in the internship programme are enthusiastic because they make contact with potential recruits, and expand their capacity to adopt and adapt technology and science research.
A number of government and non-governmental organisations have expressed interest in recruiting our PhD graduates as interns. These include:
Expressions of interest can be sent to Catherine Gibbs and we can look to make introductions with the best point of contact.
