AOPP Summer Vacation Students

2021 Summer Vacation Programme

COVID CAVEAT: If current restrictions are eased by the summer, the AOPP Vacation programme will proceed as normal. In the event that the AOPP Laboratory is not open to visitors by the summer, vacation projects will be on-line only.

Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics hosts a research programme for undergraduate students during the summer. Students work with a supervisor in the Department, usually a postdoctoral researcher or lecturer, on a self-contained research project. Students are also encouraged to take part in Departmental life, joining researchers for coffee, discussions and seminars. We anticipate taking about six students.

The projects run for typically 8 weeks, nominally from late June to August, though the duration may be shorter to accommodate summer travel. Students are paid a living wage for their time, around £350 per week (subject to tax and National Insurance deductions). 75% of the salary due for the entire project will be advanced during the first week, and the rest will be paid after completion of the project. The project is full-time but hours can be discussed with your supervisor. Please note that projects are not available to applicants that require a work permit.

There are currently no projects on offer.
