PhD Candidate Internship Opportunity – Research

The Role

Faith Matters is offering an internship initially for a period of 3 months, with the possibility of extension. This position would be of interest to PhD candidates with a research interest in areas including:

Islam in the Contemporary West; Radicalisation and Extremism.

The intern will be the Lead Researcher, working on a research project funded by the European Union. This project seeks to evaluate links between Conversion to Islam and Radicalisation; specifically in the context of the British Government’s PVE agenda but also more widely.

Therefore, the research aims, objective and topic has been pre-identified and this can be discussed in further detail with interested applicants. Initially, the successful applicant will be responsible for identifying and evaluating secondary sources and for the production of a literature review, before moving forward to design a research model for conducting further primary qualitative research.

There is a possibility to continue with Faith Matters to assist in conducting this research.

Location and Compensation

The Faith Matters Office is in Central London, however interns based outside of London may choose to discuss working remotely.

Interns will receive a stipend of £100 per dium including travel expenses; and we anticipate the internship to commence in the first week of January, although this is negotiable.

To apply

Interested applicants should be familiar with the subject area and possess strong analytical skills, and should submit their CV and a Covering Letter.
