Black Internship Programme 2023

This is the third year of running our Black Internship Programme, in collaboration with the 10,000 Black Interns Foundation and the Health Data Alliance.

By bringing together the extraordinary variety and breadth of data activities across our host organisations and from different parts of the country (all four nations) - we are delivering an internship programme to attract talented Black people who are considering a career in health data research.

The internship is for Monday 3 July 2023 - Friday 25 August 2023.

Interns will be recruited and employed by a host organisation for the 8-weeks and will participate in training activities throughout the internship, including:

  • Friday afternoon ‘takeover’ sessions with health data experts

  • Access to our virtual learning platform Futures for training on health data topics

  • Mentorship

  • A group technical challenge

  • In-person events with the other interns

Who can apply?

You are encouraged to apply if you are a Black person currently studying at a university in the U.K. or recently graduated from a U.K. university (2021 and 2022). This is open to Black persons of all academic backgrounds.

It is ideally suited to those with a degree in maths, computer / data science, engineering, or biological sciences.

Please note that you must have a right to work in the UK. We do not support visas for this programme.
