Research Experience Placements (REPs) are paid Summer internships for Home/EU undergraduates from any university who are 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 at least £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 open for EnvEast's 2018 REP scheme.
Candidates may apply for up to two EnvEast REP projects (see below) each year. To apply, candidates should send a C.V., a statement of up to 200 words stating which project you wish to apply for and why, and the name of a member of staff who can vouch for your academic abilities (e.g. your academic adviser/tutor).
The deadline for applications is Tuesday 15 May 2018.
Any enquiries about the EnvEast REP scheme should be sent to David/Alison at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Apply by sending a CV (to include an academic referee) and covering letter to email@example.com, 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).
