Summer Studentships

Category: Current

Each year LIVE offer an exciting opportunity for an undergraduate student to undertake a 6-8 week (paid @ £200 per week) research project during the summer. Dates are usually flexible but the project must start once teaching finishes for the summer (July), and should be completed by the start of the new term in September.

All aspects of project design, development and delivery are undertaken by the research student with support from our team. Funding for this project is donated by the Animal Care Trust (ACT).  Each year the project focuses on a different subject area.
