James Black Prize Studentships

The School of Life Sciences has a number of James Black Prize Studentships available during the summer of 2017. The studentships will enable undergraduate students with an excellent track record in a scientific discipline, who wish to pursue a future career in scientific research, an opportunity to gain valuable experience of working in a world-class research laboratory within the School of Life Sciences. The Studentships available provide a student stipend of £200 per week for 10 weeks.

This year funding is also available to support Inter-institutional training for chemistry, computing, medical and biology students between the Universities of Dundee, Glasgow and St' Andrews.  We are open to approaches from students studying any scientific discipline that can be applied to the current research in the School of Life Sciences, for example (but not exclusively) biochemistry, molecular genetics, biomedical sciences, medicine, dentistry, applied mathematics, computing etc. 

Undergraduate students will be able to apply for summer project opportunities in Semester 1 2016/17. Although it is anticipated that many Dundee students will apply for these position, we strongly encourage applications from students from other Universities, both in the UK and beyond. Allocation of James Black Prize Studentships will be offered on a competitive basis.

The second call for applications to the Life Sciences Vacation Studentship programme is now open. 

The deadline for applications is 19th March 2017.
