Placement Opportunities for Postgraduate Researchers

All postgraduate researchers at Liverpool have the opportunity to undertake a 15 day placement, outside of academia, taken consecutively or over several weeks, and receive a £500 bursary.

The Liverpool Doctoral College Placement Scheme facilitates placements in a wide variety of organisations in the public, private and charity sector. Whether your career plans involve remaining in academia, or elsewhere, a placement holds the potential for you to develop skills, experience and contacts that will enhance your employability.

If you’re an employer, and would like to benefit from adding a highly-skilled postgraduate researcher to your team at no extra cost to your organisation, register your interest.

If you're a current student then please visit the Liverpool Doctoral College Intranet to view current placement opportunities.
