Remote work opportunities through the Summer Internship Programme

Blogged by Corina Lacurezeanu on 01/04/2020.

The Summer Internship Programme continues to advertise exclusive internships to Oxford students at all levels of study!

The fantastic range of remote working opportunities includes the chance to work with the UN, legal companies, aerospace organisations, start-ups and museums.

You can browse all remote internships available through the programme on CareerConnect. Please note you can now apply to an unlimited number of summer internships with an application deadline of 13 April 2020.

To find help with your applications, have a look on our website for advice on writing your CV and personal statement. Useful information is also available in the Essential Internship Guidance page and in our comprehensive Application Support Guide (pdf).

If you would like to have a discussion by telephone, you can also book a Short Discussion appointment with one of our Careers Advisers.

We are really impressed with the flexibility of many internship hosts who are now adjusting to the restrictions posed by the coronavirus pandemic. Many international and UK hosts who previously advertised internships through the programme have adapted or converted their internships to remote working. However, it is unavoidable that some internships are no longer taking place as they cannot be moved or held remotely.

If this is case the for you, please explore other ways to spend your summer, with volunteering and employment opportunities.

Despite the setbacks caused by the outbreak of coronavirus, the Careers Service and Internship Office continue to support Oxford students in their career and personal development. We realise this is especially needed for those who are unable to apply for internships, or have had an internship cancelled.

Our Careers Advisers have put together a list of opportunities that can make a difference to your CV during the coronavirus pandemic.

Posted on behalf of Pivigo. Blogged by Hugh Nicholson-Lailey on 01/04/2020.

Pivigo, providers of the London-based Science to Data Science (S2DS) programme have moved their August programme to their remote learning model – it will be the 12th time they have delivered the S2DS bootcamp via distance learning, so a tried and tested teaching model.

Applications close this Sunday, so move quickly if you are an analytical DPhil or MSc student or recent graduate interested in making the transition to a data science career. For details, visit the Science to Data Science website: www.s2ds.org 

The bootcamp will provide both training and support whilst you work in a virtual team on a commercial data science problem for a commercial organisation. Over the 5 weeks of the programme, you should develop increased confidence and expertise, real-life experience and a new network within the learning cohort and S2DS alumni group.

Applications are invited from people who:

  • DPhil/PhD or MSc in an analytical science
  • Intermediate programming skills in Python, R, Java or similar
  • Documented experience in use of mathematical and statistical methods
  • Excellent communication skills in writing and speaking
  • Strong desire to transition into a data science career

Successful applicants are required to pay a £800 registration fee, but there are no additional costs beyond that.
