We are currently recruiting volunteers for our 2022-2023 In2research programme, which aims to improve access to postgraduate research degrees for people from low income and disadvantaged backgrounds.

In2research is a year-long programme designed to run alongside the participant’s university study or work commitments. Through online skills workshops, mentoring, away days and an 8-week summer research placement, we support young people to progress to research degrees and careers in Arts & Humanities, Social Sciences, and STEM. Your time and support would be invaluable in the delivery of this programme.

We are currently looking for academics to volunteer as placement hosts and mentors.

As a placement host, you would supervise an 8-week research project for our participants in the summer of 2023, involving a 2 hour induction session and regular supervision sessions. As a mentor, you would supervise 4x 1 hour mentoring sessions and also attend a 2 hour induction.

For more information, please have a look at our website.

Applications for volunteers are now open! Sign up on our expression of interest form, and we will be in touch once we successfully match you with one of our participants.

We’d really love to see your expression of interest forms submitted.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with [email protected]
