Nuffield Research Placements – Supervisors Needed

Leave a comment

Providing a Nuffield Research Placement offers you the chance to inspire the next generation of researchers, at the same time as moving forward with your own projects. It’s an opportunity to give a 17-year-old the chance to discover what a career in STEM (science, technology, engineering or maths) might be like.

Work carried out by students often leads to published papers and has been used as the basis for grant applications.
In addition, supervising a student helps staff to develop their own teaching and mentoring skills. This is particularly useful for PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and staff looking to gain management experience.
