A PhD internship can provide valuable hands-on experience and progress your professional development in many ways. If you’re in the final two years of your study, you are eligible for an opportunity to join Shell and expand your learning beyond the classroom.

Take part in field trips, social activities and the chance to interact with senior leaders and a global team. You’ll be assigned a mentor who will work closely to progressively further your knowledge in your chosen field of study. Discover what Shell can offer as an employer and earn the chance to join a company that is at the forefront of technology.

What we look for

We’re looking for like-minded innovators who share a sharp intellect, a collaborative spirit and a drive for breaking new grounds.

During the internship, you’ll have a formal mid-term review with your mentor and supervisor. Following this, there will be a final review where you’ll be asked to complete an online simulation exercise and written task. You’ll also be asked to prepare a final presentation about your project. Succeed in your internship and you could be offered employment at Shell.
