Last year NORBIS developed an internship program for PhD students who are looking into jobs outside of academia. In this internship program, successful applicants got a scholarship covering three months of salary and living expenses (if needed) working within the public sector in Norway.
NORBIS member Petra Hribovšek was one of the successful candidates and she spent her three months internship at the Institute of Marine Research in Bergen.
“I value this experience, and it is certainly a privilege to do this kind of thing. In an ideal world, everyone working towards their PhD should have the option to do such an internship and I hope this can become more accessible in the future. Given the short period, I recommend others to plan their stay and communicate the plan with your internship host as much as possible in advance. This helps to make the most out of one’s internship and to learn to be flexible when changes to the plan occur, as they most likely will.”

Last year NORBIS developed an internship program for PhD students who are looking into jobs outside of academia. In this internship program, successful applicants got a scholarship covering three months of salary and living expenses (if needed) working within the public sector in Norway. One of the successful applicants was Sophie Fisher-Holzhausen who spent her three months internship at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (NIPH) in Oslo.
“For me personally, it was valuable to take a break from my PhD work because it allowed me to change my perspective and reevaluate my goals. Furthermore, with this internship, I expanded my professional network as well as my skill set, which was extremely helpful for me when looking for a new position after my PhD.
In summary, I am grateful for the opportunity that has been provided to me by the NORBIS public sector internship programme.”

NORBIS PhD student member Thea Os Andersen wrote a successful application to our International Exchange call last year and she is now back in Norway after her exchange to Brisbane, Australia.
“It’s never too late to go on exchange, to learn new things and experience a different scientific environment. I’m grateful for the support I received from NORBIS that allowed me to gain a lot of new perspectives, both related to my research and personal life, in addition to a broad network of scientists from all over the world that I hope to keep in touch with for future collaborations.”
