IOP Work Placement Bursaries in Physics at Lancaster: Applications Now Open
The Institute of Physics TOP50 scheme offers penultimate-year physics undergraduate students the opportunity to gain paid work experience over the summer and build the transferable skills required to secure the best jobs when they graduate.
Staff in Lancaster's physics department have successfully bid to host 5 of these work placements, an impressive 10% of the placements offered nationally. The placements at Lancaster will provide work experience in the fields of low temperature nanoelectronics, infrared imaging sensors, muon-neutrino particle physics and quantum light sources.
Students from across the UK can view details of the placements on offer through the IOP website and make applications until 28th April 2014.
For further information contact Dr Andrew Marshall.
