EPSRC Vacation Internships 2023

The University is currently recruiting 15 undergraduate students for the Schools of Chemistry, Computing Science, Engineering, Mathematics & Statistics and Physics & Astronomy to work on a research project over the summer, under the EPSRC Vacation Internship scheme. 

The scheme supports undergraduate students to gain practical first-hand experience of research and encourages them to consider a research career. Students receive a salary of £486 per week (assuming satisfactory engagement with their research) and carry out a project lasting eight to ten weeks during the summer holiday. All students will be invited to a reception in September at which they will be required to present their research. 

Students should be in the middle years of a first degree within EPSRC's remit, and able to fulfil EPSRC doctoral training grant eligibility requirements by the end of their undergraduate degree (i.e be classified as home/EU for fee purposes).  

Applications should be submitted to scieng-gradschool@glasgow.ac.uk by Tuesday 23rd of June 2023. Projects will commence in early July (to be confirmed on discussion with the supervisor).
