Undergraduate Internships

Are you a first or second year looking to gain some experience of research? The interaction and modelling lab are hoping to recruit two undergraduate interns for the academic year 2022/2023. You’ll be working on real research projects, helping to collect and analyse data, with the ultimate goal of getting a paper published. The positions are unpaid, but this is great experience for anyone considering a career in research, and a successful project will lead to co-authorship of an academic paper.

Interns would join the project for the full academic year, from mid-October 2022 through to the end of Semester 2, 2023.
