With the SAIC internships programme, life sciences students have the chance to spend a three-month paid internship with Scottish aquaculture businesses large or small – or with SAIC itself.

The first step to encouraging new generations into the sector is making them aware of the wealth of career opportunities that exist

SAIC has recruited four summer interns to undertake 10-week placements related to skills, careers and knowledge transfer - and for the first time, the internships will be conducted entirely online!

This project will combine knowledge transfer, education and public awareness of the aquaculture industry. Topics will focus on opportunities within Scottish aquaculture, promotion of the industry as a career destination, the use of technology and data, knowledge transfer, marketing and communications.

We will introduce you to our four new interns in due course, and publish updates on their progress over the next ten weeks.
