Apply to become an intern

Beacon Internships Logo - a lighthouse within a purple circle


The overall aim of the Athena SWAN sponsored Warwick SMT Beacon Internships is to create opportunities to upskill ‘under-represented’ communities in clinical research, through mentored internships in healthcare technologies and healthcare innovation. We have 5 projects available, ranging from MSK health through to medical education. The five Beacon Internships are:

  1. Ethnic Minority - for all ethnic minority communities
  2. Pride - LGBTQAI+ community
  3. Gender - for all under-represented genders, such as female-identifying, non-binary and transgender
  4. Neurodivergent - for all neurodiverse communities
  5. Widening Participation - for those from lower-income backgrounds

These Beacon Internships will allow for flexible working, allowing better access to those who have caring responsibilities or different internship access requirements. These Beacon Internships may be delivered throughout academic term-times and throughout academic holidays, in order to provide the opportunities to engage at the most appropriate time for the research project and interns. There will only be one intern on each internship throughout the academic year. More information about the Beacon Internships, including the expectations of the intern, supervision and mentoring available throughout can be found in this documentLink opens in a new window.
