The Academic Internship Event

The Academic Internship Event (AIE) is held in the closing weeks of Michaelmas Term (October – December). In collaboration with Trinity College Science Society, the AIE sees members of the Society and the University share their experiences in applying for and carrying out internships in science and provides opportunities for networking with fellow students and represented institutions and companies.

The AIE attracts a large number of students from across the University, who are interested in pursuing a career in science. The 4th AIE will be held on 21 Nov 2020, in collaboration with long-time partners Trinity SciSoc, and new partners Oxford SciSoc. We are really excited to bring a fantastic programme to the students of Cambridge, Oxford and further afield. Our speakers have experience in numerous research programmes and labs around the world, as well as in industry and start-ups. The full programme is available .

The 3rd AIE was held in Michaelmas 2019 (23 Nov 2019) and was attended by nearly 200 people. Although the AIE lasts for a whole afternoon, it is by no means compulsory to stay for all the sessions. Past sessions have included:
