The Physics of Life network 2 is an EPSRC/BBSRC national UK network aimed to bridge research between physicists and biologists. One of the network’s objectives is to train and equip the next generation of scientists for this interdisciplinary field. To support this, the Physics of Life network is offering up to 10 summer studentships to undergraduates interested in pursuing multidisciplinary research projects combining physics and biology. The aim of this bursary scheme is to give motivated undergraduates the opportunity to gain experience in writing a research proposal, and with training, carry out independent research alongside established academics. Experience gained from these projects can provide invaluable skills, useful for student personal development and future employability.
The research generated from summer bursary projects can play an important role in catalysing/pump-priming research in the form of publication and larger possible PoL research grants for academics working across Physics and Biology.
