We are an equal opportunities employer and offer a competitive salary and benefits including a non-contributory pension scheme. Staff are based in our Cambridge office.

We offer professional internships for PhD students. Each internship is carefully defined, both with the institute and the individual, and usually involves projects with our journal teams. Each year, we host a 12-week internship with a focus on data gathering and analysis – if you are interested in applying, please contact us at email@example.com ideally a year in advance. From time to time, we offer additional internships, such as working on our blog, the Node – for these, please look out for one of our job adverts.
Hosted internships are funded through PhD programmes – created by funders to help further your professional development – and should be agreed with your PhD supervisor and institute.
