BBSRC Summer Research Experience Placements 2014

The BBSRC has allocated the EASTBIO Doctoral Training Partnership 9 funded Research Experience Placements (REP) this summer for projects in Healthy Ageing, Food Security, Biotech & Bioenergy and World-class Underpinning Bioscience. The aim of these placements is to give talented undergraduates professional experience in a research environment, particularly useful for anyone considering a career in academic or industrial research. Each REP provides £200 per week stipend for a research project of up to 10 weeks.
