Undergraduate Summer Studentships

The Carbon Recycling Network has funds available for summer studentships to fund undergraduate students who wish to gain experience in the field of C1 gas fermentation, primarily using chemoautotrophs, and exploring the potential of anaerobic digestion (AD) as a gas fermentation feedstock generator.

Preference will be given to projects with industrial involvement, with secondments in a company laboratory encouraged.

The student may not be in the final year of their undergraduate degree course.

The funding will support the living expenses of the student (£200 per week, for up to 10 weeks fEC) and a budget for consumables (maximum £500 fEC).


CLOSES: 30 APRIL 2020 – 5PM
