Summer Studentships 2018
Jan 12 2018 Read 273 Times
Applications are open for the RMS summer studentships which were developed for undergraduate students, typically moving into their third or fourth year, to complete a microscopy project during their summer break, providing them with invaluable experience to add to their CV.
Online submissions must include a significant microscopy component and should come from a suitable host academic on behalf of a student. Six studentships of £2000 are on offer: three for life sciences and three for physical sciences.
Previous projects have ranged from developing SEM data capture methodologies, software modelling and 3D printing techniques at the Natural History Museum to using a novel atomic force microscopy measurement tool to investigate the effect of curvature for a promising tool in nanomedicine.
One project mentor commented “Last year’s RMS studentship recipient has since been offered and accepted a PhD position in Cambridge, partly thanks to the highly successful project that they were able complete with the studentship and that played a big role in them being offered the position. This clearly demonstrates to me how much the studentship makes a difference to the career of students.”
Do you have a high-flying student who would relish the opportunity to complete a funded summer project? Visit www.rms.org.uk to submit an application online. Applications will close at the end of February 2018.
