Summer Studentships

2016 Cii & CEM Summer Student Research Programme – Application process now open

**DEADLINE EXTENDED – the application deadline has been extended to 5 pm Feb 19th 2016**

 

This year the Cii and the CEM will run a joint Summer Student Research Programme. This Programme provides a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to participate in laboratory-based research during the summer months.  Each participant will be assigned to a discovery research project in the laboratory of a Principal Investigator (see project link below). Students will work as part of an enthusiastic research team comprising postdoctoral fellows, research assistants, PhD students and/or technicians. The projects will run for a specified 8-week period (20/06/2016 - 12/08/2016) and students will work in the laboratory from Monday to Friday on a full-time basis. At the end of the programme, students will present their work in a short talk at our annual Summer Student Research Symposium.

Students currently enrolled for Biomedical Sciences, Medicine, Dentistry or a related discipline who will have completed at least one year of full-time study by summer 2016 are eligible to apply.  A number of funded studentships will be available; these typically pay a student stipend of £150 per week for 8 weeks. In addition, students that have secured an externally-funded summer studentship from a funding body (e.g. Wellcome Trust, Society for General Microbiology, etc.) with a host lab in Cii/CEM will be enrolled in this programme.

To maximise your competitiveness for a studentship, it is strongly recommended that you identify a Principal Investigator (PI) in Cii or CEM that you would like to work with and discuss potential opportunities with them. Details of projects on offer (subject to funding) are available via the link for Summer Student Projects 2016 below. Details of all Cii and CEM PIs and their research areas can be found in the staff pages of the Cii and CEM websites.

Students from all Universities and countries are welcome to apply.

The application process is open with a revised deadline of 5 pm Feb 19th 2016.
