Marine Scotland invites postgraduate students (at Masters and PhD levels) in UK academic institutions to apply for a paid internship, duration between 3-6 months, to undertake a research project addressing knowledge gaps in the fields of offshore renewable energy, fish ecology and commercial fisheries, as identified by the ScotMER FFSRG Evidence Map.

Applicants must be resident in the UK and be enrolled in a PhD or MSc at a UK university entitled to a home fee basis. Postgraduates will be expected to retain their PhD or MSc registration during the internship and will be registered at the University of Aberdeen on a visiting student status if required.

This is a funded opportunity by Marine Scotland.
