The PESS Internship is an opportunity for individuals to spend up to eight weeks in PESS gaining experience in one of four research areas, (1) Food for Health, (2) Physical Activity and Health, (3) Sport and Human Performance and (4) Sport Pedagogy. The internship allows individuals an opportunity to work with PESS faculty, explore further their interest and disposition to postgraduate study and / or to consider working in a university setting. The internship will allow individuals to gain experience in working on a project that entails collecting and processing preliminary data. It may be that a PESS faculty member already has data that requires further analysis and, in such circumstances, the internship would contribute to an already established project.
A maximum of eight internships to be completed between June 2019 and May 2020 are to be offered. Internships will receive €200 a week over a maximum of eight weeks. PESS will not fund associated running costs of the project. The eight week internship can take place at any time throughout the June 2019 to May 2020 period.
Interested candidates are asked to approach a member of the PESS faculty to initiate a discussion on their interests in undertaking an internship in one of the four research areas listed above. The feasibility of the individual working with the faculty member to complete the internship application as well as the faculty member’s availability to oversee the internship should also be established.
