The scheme offers 6-weeks research placements from the 3rd July to the 11th August 2023, to four students who are studying at a UK or Republic of Ireland university for their undergraduate bachelor degree and are in in their middle year(s) or study. The summer placements are suitable for those studying psychology, cognitive sciences, neuroscience or a related discipline.
These placement students will join a current MRC CBU research group, work in a shared office at the MRC CBU, have the opportunity to rent affordable accommodation at Churchill College and will receive a weekly stipend of £400, paid at the end of the placement.
This is a fantastic opportunity for talented students who might not otherwise feel they can easily access summer research opportunities to:
- get hands on research experience
- develop a range of skills
- interact with fellow summer placement students, postgraduate students and research staff
- live in a Cambridge College
