We hope to offer around eight places for Summer Students each year.
Applications are now open for 2023.
We are looking for high-quality undergraduates who are ideally in their 3rd year studying physics (in some cases, we may consider students studying Maths, Computer Science, or Engineering).
These Studentships are highly competitive.
Successful applicants will work with our Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (Oxfordshire) staff on one of our projects. These include ATLAS, CMS, Dark Matter, LHCb, LZ and T2K. Placements at the Particle Physics Department and Boulby Laboratory are detailed here.
Studentships will typically be for 8 weeks, in the period of June to September.
Students will be responsible for their own accommodation and transport (we will try to help - see below), but will be paid 300 pounds per week to cover their expenses.
If you are not eligible for our scheme or are interested in working in other STFC departments, please visit the
STFC Summer Student page.
Applicants will typically be studying physics or a similar discipline. They must already be eligible to work in the UK.
