Applications are now open for Oxford University students to undertake a week-long micro-internship with the National Trust Partnership in summer 2020. 

What will you do?
In 2021 everyone residing in the UK will be required to fill out the census. The National Trust will be making this significant national moment with a programme exploring the theme of 'Home' which will draw upon historic census data and archival sources to underpin public-facing activity. Working with Oxford’s National Trust Partnership, this Curatorial Research Microinternship will support this national programme by undertaking online research into the ‘Home’ theme for some of the National Trust’s flagship properties across the UK. The placement will take place in Week 10 of Trinity Term (Monday 29 June – Friday 3 July) .
What will you gain?
Our microinternships provide opportunities to gain experience of curatorial research, insights into how research informs heritage projects, and experience of using historical resources. 
Location & supervision
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the placement will take place remotely using online resources. You will be supervised by Alice Purkiss, National Trust Partnership Lead at Oxford University, and Helen Antrobus, National Trust Programme Curator - National Public Programmes, with supervision via regular video calls throughout the week. For more information and to apply, visit the Careers Service website.

Deadline Monday 11th May, 2020
