Our Health Data Science Black Internship Programme – ran in partnership with 10,000 Black Interns initiative – provides an exciting opportunity to not only help to tackle the heavy underrepresentation of Black people within the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) sector, but to also provide early career Black data scientists with the experience they need to kick-start their careers.
Planned for the summer of 2022, this programme will offer interns a high-quality, eight-week internship with one of our host organisations. All interns will be paid at London Living Wage as a minimum. Interns will not only learn about health data science in action but will also carry out their own clearly defined research projects.
We look forward to another successful year of our Health Data Science Black Internship Programme, and to welcoming both interns and host organisations to the programme.
