Applications are invited for the following projects:

  • Be applying for a placement in a different department to their undergraduate degree
  • Be undertaking their first degree studies (or integrated Masters)
  • Be expected to obtain a first or upper second class UK honours degree or equivalent
  • Be eligible for subsequent NERC PhD funding (UK, EU or right to remain in the UK)

All projects listed above are subject to funding. Please send a CV to the supervisor as soon as possible but no later than Thursday 31 May 2018. The selected projects will be carried out over the summer holiday 2018.
