Description

The Department of Mathematics of Swansea University is currently recruiting two undergraduate students to work on a research project over the summer, under the EPSRC Vacation Internships scheme.
The scheme supports undergraduate students from any UK university to gain a taster of what it is like to do research. Students are given practical first-hand experience of a career in research.
Students will receive a salary of £332.50 per week and carry out a project lasting eight weeks during the summer holidays.
Projects will commence in early July (to be confirmed on discussion with the supervisor).

To be eligible, students will need to be:  

  • Registered for a first degree at a UK institution in a subject related to the chosen research project.
  • Students who are currently in their final year and who will have completed their degree by the summer are not eligible – applications are only open to students in their penultimate year of study or earlier.
