Paid Summer Placements for Undergraduates

STARS is offering NERC Research Experience Placements (REPs)this summer. The scheme offers to fund summer placements for undergraduates studying quantitative disciplines outside the NERC remit. This is a great opportunity to experience Environmental research at first hand. Applicants must:

  • be studying for an undergraduate degree in a quantitative discipline outside of NERC’s scientific remit (e.g. mathematics, statistics, computing, engineering, physics)
  • be applying for a placement in a different department to their undergraduate degree,
  • be undertaking their first undergraduate degree studies (or integrated Masters),
  • be expected to obtain a first or upper second class UK honours degree,
  • be eligible for subsequent NERC PhD funding (i.e. UK, EU or right to remain in the UK).
