The NERC Envision DTP Research Experience Placement (REP) scheme encourages undergraduates undertaking quantitative subjects outside of NERC remit to consider careers in environmental science. During a REP, an undergraduate joins the hosting organisation for between 8 and 10 weeks to complete a short-term research project within the environmental sciences. We offer up to three summer placements per year. Projects are open to undergraduate students from across the UK.
Each REP should be 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 and a contribution towards research and training expenses of up to £500. Additional funding beyond this amount must be found from other sources, including the department.
