Kids Research Institute at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead Science Communication Internship Program

Do you have a love for science, and a talent for writing? Do you enjoy interviewing researchers about their work, and then reporting on it in an engaging, clear style?

If so, then Kids Research Institute has an outstanding internship opportunity for you!

The internship program has been developed in an effort to further identify the key areas in which an intern, carrying out, or having recently completed, tertiary education, can learn from the various aspects of the Kids Research Institute (KRI) at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

The current length of an internship within the KRI is for 3 months minimum, at least 2 days per week (9am – 5pm). This program endeavours to outline the basis for the internship program providing interns with an understanding of the key areas they will be exposed to during the course of their internship and also the way in which their tasks will develop with their experience.

Each Intern will be co-supervised by the Research Office at KRI and the Public Relations Department at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

Proactive writers willing to dig for stories are strongly encouraged to apply!
