We now have the opportunity for undergraduate students to gain practical work experience during summer 2018, while earning a generous salary. If you are interested in starting your career working at the forefront of scientific research, you could even be selected as one of our sponsored students and receive a payment of up to £6,000 per annum for the rest of your course.
Students can work for 4 -12 weeks at either the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (Harwell, Oxfordshire), Daresbury Laboratory (Warrington) or The UK Astronomy Technology Centre (Edinburgh) on projects relevant to their intended or current course of study, under the supervision of experts in their chosen field.
We offer an invaluable experience with exposure to world class science and technology, and the opportunity to develop working relationships that continue well after your placement has finished.
Candidates may apply for no more than 3 vacancies in total and must provide a cover letter (expect for PPD roles where a covering letter is not required), specifying which vacancy they are applying for.
All candidates must have existing right to work in the UK.
The closing date for the scheme is 1 April. However, some roles will close before this date – see individual vacancies for details. In previous years we have had an exceptionally high response for many roles, and subsequently we reserve the right to close individual projects early, subject to demand.
We have slightly different applications process for vacancies in ISIS, PPD and the rest of STFC, so please follow the relevant instructions.
