UNIQ+ research internships
UNIQ+ research internships are designed to provide students from under-represented and disadvantaged backgrounds with the opportunity to experience postgraduate study at Oxford.
UNIQ+ aims to provide a real day-to-day experience of postgraduate research. During the seven-week programme students will undertake a research project, attend training skills sessions and receive information on graduate study.
Our intention, is that everyone who takes part will gain confidence, skills and experience that will enhance both their CV and any future postgraduate applications. During UNIQ+, students will live in college accommodation and experience life as a graduate student in Oxford. Social activities, including some organised lunches and dinners, will introduce students to our community and to some of the University of Oxford’s famous traditions and locations.
The 2024 internships will take place 1 July - 16 August 2024
2024 Graduate Internship Opportunities
History 01 - Mapping the rise of Christian kingship, 300 - 840
You will work on gathering materials for the appendices of a forthcoming book on Christian kingship in the late antique and early medieval worlds. You will help identify and gather a collection of relevant maps that will supplement the text; there is also a possibility of working with mapping software to produce new maps if the researcher felt that was necessary. You will undertake research for other supplementary materials (lists of rulers and family trees) and collate the required information.
History 02 - Middle Eastern migration in 19th and 20th-century North and South America
This project will give you the opportunity to join a large-scale collaborative research project that explores the lives and experiences of Middle Eastern migrants who travelled from the Ottoman Empire to the Americas in the late 19th and early 20th century.
History 03 - What is the future of geothermal energy in the Caribbean?
We urgently need new sources of 'green' energy and raw materials to transition to a low-carbon world. The hot fluids from volcanoes could deliver both via geothermal energy, and new sources of dissolved metals. Our new interdisciplinary programme on 'rethinking natural resources' is looking at the challenges and opportunities of geothermal energy on Montserrat, in the Eastern Caribbean.
