You may apply for up to three Envision projects. Please do not apply for the same project more than once. You will need to upload a completed application form and CV for each project that you apply for.

Please list your two referees in your CV. The project supervisor will get in touch with your referees after the deadline of Wednesday 11th January 2023. You do not need to do anything for this to happen.

We are committed to reducing, as far as possible, any potential bias in our application process. In this light:

  • Please do not include a photo in your CV.
  • Your referees will be asked to write a gender-neutral reference, without your name.
  • We will also be offering mentoring to some home applicants who fulfil widening participation criteria. Applications for this mentoring scheme are open from 12pm 18th November – 12pm 25th November, and we will accept as many mentees as possible, using a lottery system.
