Are you wondering if research is for you? Let a summer internship give you a clearer picture.

Applications are now closed for summer 2017 internships. Applications for Summer 2018 will open in December.

STOR-i internships offer a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to experience and learn how Statistics and Operational Research can be employed to tackle challenging, real-life practical problems.

As a STOR-i research intern at Lancaster University you can expect to be working with high calibre PhD students and academic staff on exciting and innovative research projects in the area of Statistics and Operational Research. In particular, you will work under the supervision of one of the STOR-i PhD students on a project strongly connected to their research work and you will be supported by a bursary of £275 per week.

Throughout the internship you will also have the opportunity to meet various members of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and the Management Science Department in both formal and informal settings. 


As a STOR-i intern you will be joining other high-calibre undergraduate students studying in the vibrant research environment at Lancaster University and you will be supported by a bursary of £275 per week. Some of the key benefits of being a STOR-i intern include:

  • Experience how mathematical ideas can be employed to solve important practical problems.
  • Learn how to apply quantitative skills to important practical problems.
  • Gain a valuable insight into what it would be like to do a PhD.
  • Develop practical skills to enable you to excel in your studies and beyond.
