The Research and Strategy Management Division (RSM) at the Ministry of National Development comprises of the Research and Data Analytics Resource Unit (RaDAR) and the Strategy Management Unit. The RaDAR conducts research studies to inform policy work and related decisions. The Strategy Management Unit provides alignment and coordination for policy and planning within the MND family and across whole-of-government. The division also has an international relations team which oversees our engagement with foreign counterparts and an emergency preparedness team which oversees and coordinates the organisation’s role during national emergencies.
We would like to invite interested university students in their third year or later to apply for an internship with the department’s research unit, RaDAR. You would get to experience first-hand what research work is like at MND. You will be part of a dynamic team at RaDAR the which provides timely and accurate research output to policy divisions and Senior Management to review policies and inform decisions.
The internship aims to provide students with the opportunity to experience public-sector research work by embarking on a project relating to one of the following topics:
Through the internship, students will have the opportunity to witness the important role research plays in the policy development process. They would get to conceptualise studies and gain experience in essential research skills (such as data preparation and analysis) through practical hands-on work and guidance provided by experienced researchers. At the end of the internship, students will have the opportunity to present their completed study to our management.
