Internship opportunities at Pukeko Research
There are limited opportunities for research internships at Pūkeko Research in 2015. Internships involve work on one project, or across several, and are generally held for a defined number of hours. Interns must be completing a Bachelors, Honours or Masters degree in 2015, or be enrolled as a PhD student. There are three kinds of Internship:
1. Work on a dedicated project
Currently there are options available for work on the history of the Howard League for Penal Reform, or on further work for the Women’s Voices from the Christchurch Earthquakes project. Options also exist to analyse media reporting around charter schools and massive open online courses (MOOCs).
2. Community research
Opportunities exist for a range of projects working with community organisations on their research needs. Our work is mainly with justice, education, law and social service agencies.
3. Learning to be a contract researcher
This kind of position involves undertaking research tasks under supervision and analysing data. You may work on several different projects over the period.
Internships are generally unpaid positions. The main outcome from an internship is a formal reference that outlines the work covered, supervision provided and skills learned. However, interns who work on currently-funded programmes may be paid, and any travel or other costs will be paid.
