SEPnet Summer Placements 2019

Posted on: 15/01/2019

Do you have a project/work experience for a physics undergraduate or PhD student in South East England?

SEPnet (South East Physics Network) is a consortium of university physics departments РHertfordshire, Kent, Portsmouth, Queen Mary, Reading, Royal Holloway, Southampton, Surrey, Sussex and Open University Рwhich organises an annual placement scheme for physics students.

The placements take place at the above universities and, alongside the academic placement, the student must have an eight-week (plus) project in industry or research in areas such as data analysis, mathematical modelling, product design and testing or science communication.

The scheme is aimed at any organisations interested in recruiting physics graduates, or who can offer valuable business experience, including large companies, SMEs, start-ups, research institutions, charities and NGOs.

Employers will benefit from:

  • early access to bright, numerate students with excellent problem-solving and IT skills
  • the ability to carry out projects you would not normally have time for
  • a fresh perspective on business challenges

All advertising, administration and placement support is handled by SEPnet and there is some funding available for SMEs.

You can register your placement project, or projects, here by Friday 15 February – early submissions will be prioritised.
