Research Internship Scheme

PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY RECRUITING MORE INTERNS. HOWEVER, THERE WILL BE FUTURE VACANCIES – SO PLEASE DO GET IN TOUCH TO REGISTER AN INTEREST.

The Constitutional Commission is growing fast and needs more people-power to carry on our work.

We are looking to recruit a team of interns to assist us in our future research activities.  The work would involve contributing to a specific research project on a matter related to democracy, citizenship and constitutional reform in Scotland, with a view to disseminating research findings through presentations and publications.

This internship scheme would ideally suit an undergraduate or recent graduate in Political Science or a relevant Social Science, Arts or Humanities discipline.

We regret that we are currently unable to offer paid employment.  However, we can offer the experience, contacts and references which will help you to build your future career.  It would be possible to combine a part-time internship with paid work or full-time education.

If you are interested, please send a CV and ONE of the following additional pieces of written work:

(1) An essay on the subject, “Would an independent Scotland need a bicameral legislature?”

Or:

(2) An outline for a research proposal on the topic of “Assessing constitutional literacy in Scotland”.

Or:

(3) An outline for a research proposal on a relevant topic of your choice.

Your written submission should be 1500-2000 words in length.

There is no deadline for applications; recruitment is on an on-going basis.

To apply, or for further information, please email info@constitutionalcommission.org
