Research Experience Placement (REP) scheme

DREAM Challenge Week – July 11-15, 2016

NERC recognises that there is a shortage of individuals with quantitative skills coming into environmental science and runs the Research Experience Placement (REP) scheme. This aims to address this shortage by offering funding to support summer placements for undergraduate students studying quantitative disciplines which are outside the normal NERC remit – such as engineering, maths and computer science (to name a few). Dream is offering three of these prestigious placement scholarships over the Summer of 2017.

During the REP placement you will undertake a research project within the environmental sciences through a placement intended to encourage students to consider a career in environmental science.

DREAM Challenge Week – 11-15 July, 2016

Initial funding for three REPs has been made available to the DREAM CDT: further funding may become available. Each REP is for a minimum of eight weeks (and a maximum of ten weeks) over the summer vacation period. Funding of up to £2,500 is available per REP to cover the minimum stipend of £200 per week, as well as a contribution towards research and training expenses of up to £500. Additional funding beyond this amount must be found from other sources, including the host department.

In addition to the personal research project, you will also have a chance to join in our shared activities across the four university, such as our Challenge Week.
