Are you a motivated and hard-working undergraduate student on track to a first class degree? Are you excited to work in the School of Mathematical Sciences this coming summer 2018 on an actual research project? Then this is your opportunity!
The School is planning to make a number of applications to the London Mathematical Society, the Wellcome Trust, EPSRC, BBSRC, BP, the Dr Margaret Jackson Trust (for outstanding female students) and other funding agencies as part of their Summer Research Bursary schemes. The schemes typically cover up to 8-10 weeks working in the School, for projects in any area of Mathematical Sciences, for which you will be paid an average of £200 per week (depending on the funder). We expect to award around 20 bursaries this year on various topics of pure and applied Mathematics.
These projects offer really good hands-on research experience. Furthermore, successfully applying for project funding is a great addition to your CV. After the summer you will also take part in an Undergraduate Expo where you will present the outcomes of your project in a poster session attended by staff and other students.
The schemes are open to all progressing students, i.e., all second year undergrads and those third year undergrads who are on a four-year course. The schemes are highly competitive but the School has had considerable success in obtaining these bursaries in recent years. We particularly welcome applications from women.
Please see the list of projects currently offered and their supervisors. Interested students may contact the supervisors directly for further details on projects. Full details on how to apply can be found under 'Careers Information' on this Moodle page. All applications must be received by Monday 11th December 2017.
The Internship Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org) will offer support and coordination during all stages of the application.
