Research Experience Placements (REPs) are paid Summer internships for Home/EU undergraduates from any university studying Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, Computing, or other quantitative disciplines, who wish to gain experience of research in the Environmental Sciences.
Successful undergraduate applicants are paid a stipend of £200 per week for a placement of 8-10 weeks during the Universities' summer recess. Up to £500 funding is also available to supervisors to use for expenses incurred by the research project. Successful candidates will later be encouraged to apply for a NERC-funded PhD in the Environmental Sciences.
Applications are now closed for EnvEast's 2017 REP scheme.
3. Apply by sending a CV (to include an academic referee) and covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org, by 27 May 2016. Separate covering letters should be sent for each project applied for.
One candidate for each project will be selected by supervisors to be put forward for a short interview by an independent panel at UEA in Norwich, on 10 June 2016. Telephone/Skype interviews will be available. At least four top ranked candidates will then be offered placements (possibly more if funding is available).
