Undergraduate – Research Placements & Opportunities
Research Experience Placements
The Science and Solution for a Changing Planet DTP hosts the Research Experience Placement (REP) summer placements scheme to enable undergraduate students to undertake a research project within the environmental sciences over the 8-10 weeks, giving an insight into the world of research – a unique opportunity which will be of great benefit to future careers.
This year, the SSCP DTP will host six REP students who will be based in a number of departments across the College and at Partner institutions.
REP students will receive a weekly stipend of £200 per week. Research and training expenses of up to £500 can be covered as agreed in advance between the SSCP DTP and the project supervisor.
REP Projects will be advertised here in May 2017.
If you would like to be contacted when these opportunities go live, please email the Administrator – Education Eleana firstname.lastname@example.org.
