Diversifying STEM Curriculum – call for UG summer interns

University of Oxford logo

The Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences Division at the University of Oxford has relaunched the Diversifying STEM Curriculum project for 2021 and are accepting applications for undergraduate interns to work on a summer project to research and produce content on a range of topics to help decolonise/diversify STEM curricula.

It is a collaboration between our STEM departments, Faculty of History, Humanities Division and History of Science Museum.

Undergraduate students in science will work with and be supervised by DPhil historians of science on a summer project to develop an online repository of materials available to professors/lecturers teaching undergraduate courses in maths and physical sciences subjects (within Oxford and externally). The material will include (1) a critical understanding of the historical context of key scientific concepts/theorems/research, and (2) highlight and discuss important contributions from a diverse range of people (with respect to ethnicity, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, disability, class, religion, etc.) and those who may have been sidelined or not given the recognition they deserve.

The call for applications is now live online and the deadline is 17 March 2021.
