Homelessness amongst Black and Minoritised Ethnic Communities: Research Internship

We are looking for our next research intern.

Based anywhere in the UK, the post is for 9 months and will be paid at the London Living wage.

It provides the post holder with a unique chance to undertake their own research project with support from the I-SPHERE team and an advisory group of experts in the field of homelessness and racial discrimination. It is a chance to delve deep into a related issue, shine a light and make recommendations that can make a difference in tackling racial inequalities in housing and homelessness.

The internship is funded by The Oak Foundation under our Homelessness and Black and Minoritised Communities: Knowledge and Capacity Building programme. Our State of the Nation Report published in November provided an authoritative account of the shocking racial inequalities in housing and homelessness – the internships dive deeper into key issues. Following in the steps of fantastic previous interns who’s research has made headlines and brought about real impacts, this internship is not only a great development opportunity for an early career researcher but a chance to lead meaningful research that can drive change.

To apply you will need a CV, covering letter and research proposal.
