IAPETUS2 are delighted to announce we will be running NERC’s Research Experience Placement (REP) scheme this summer, giving undergraduate students the opportunity to work within one of our universities or research institutes on an 8-week placement on an environmental sciences project.
The REP scheme is intended:
- to support placements for those from underrepresented demographic and diversity-related groups in environmental sciences
- to allow the development of skills to enable students to apply for a PhD in environmental sciences.
As well as providing direct experience of the research environment, IAPETUS2 will support the career development of REP students by offering mentorship and career-development support. REP students will also be integrated within virtual events with our existing PhD students over the summer.
If you successfully complete an REP with us, and subsequently apply for a PhD with us, you are guaranteed an interview for that PhD.
Support for an 8-week placement will typically be £2,475. Please get in touch if you have any questions about the support we can provide to enable access to a placement.
