A one month stay as an IFAE researcher
The Institut de Física d’Altes Energies (IFAE) offers 12 undergraduate students the possibility of spending the summer as a physics researcher through the 5th Summer Fellowship Programme. The aim of this one-month stay is to become the first step of University students research career. Participants will have the opportunity to discover the real life of a scientist working side by side with IFAE researchers.
This programme is valuable complement to your physics education. You will have the opportunity to discover the real life of a scientist working side by side with IFAE researchers.
The Fellowship is addressed to University students of any nationality in the final years of their degrees: applications from students of the second, third and fourth year of Physics and related subjects will be accepted. To apply for the Fellowship candidates might follow the Application Process required.
The Summer Fellowship will run between 1st July 2020 and 31st July 2020 Mon-Friday 9am-6pm at the IFAE premises and the students participating will receive a modest stipend.
All participants will be under the supervision of a senior researcher of the group they choose and they will be expected to work full time in the project and accommodate to the group’s schedule.
In September 2020 the students will be invited to present the results obtained during the stay in a seminar at IFAE.
