ASB Internships

The Astrobiology Society of Britain can provide financial support for undergraduate research internships in the UK that fall within the field of astrobiology. Internships offer valuable research experience and provide a window into potential career paths.

Internships must be hosted by a UK institution. Some examples of UK institutions that have carried out astrobiology research in the past and present are listed here and many have hosted ASB interns before.  Please note, this list is not exhaustive; any institution or researcher involved in astrobiology and related fields is eligible.

Funding is only available for those studying at UK institutions who will be hosted at a UK institution.

We are excited to announce that applications are now welcome for internships in the summer of 2024.

Once a researcher/research group has agreed to host an internship, the applicant should download and fill out the application form and send it to by the 28th March 2024. The applicant should prepare the research proposal (found in the form) in collaboration with the host. 

Internship reports from previous years can be found here.
