The Graduate and Researcher College is pleased to announce the undergraduate winners of the Summer Vacation Research Competition 2021:
- Penelope Agranov
- Ellie Crocker
- Carl Grevel
- Jodie Harbour
- Jonathan Hobbs
- Sophie Laxton
- Caitlin Moriaty
- Katie Town
- Juancarlos Valero.
These enthusiastic and motivated students will be employed as Research Assistants on a range of bespoke projects taking place in summer 2021.
Managed by our cohort of early career researcher winners, the students will gain valuable experience of working on real-life projects and thus learn more about the world of research whilst simultaneously boosting their CVs.
Hannah Greer, Work-Study Scheme Coordinator, highlighted the benefits of participation in the scheme for both researchers and undergraduates:
“The Summer Vacation Research Competition offers a unique chance to expand your skills no matter where you are on your early career path. Whether a postdoc looking to undertake additional project or line management, or a student wondering what the world of research is all about, the competition will broaden your horizons and skills set in a structured and supportive environment.”
Applications for this innovative opportunity for second and third-year students were managed by the Careers and Employability Service through its Work Study Scheme which helps students gain confidence and overcome barriers to graduate-level work.
