Are you passionate about your subject area? Would you like the opportunity to work with local school children…then the Widening Participation Fellow programme might be for you!

The Student Recruitment and Widening Participation Team is recruiting non-final year PhD students for the position of Widening Participation Fellows this summer. These positions support the University’s widening participation activities with a range of learners from primary through to sixth formers. There are a number of posts available in each Faculty plus a new role which will look at Public Engagement on clean air for young people.

On 24 June 2019, we are running an informal information session for anyone to come along and find out more about these roles, meet PhD students who have been WP Fellows, and learn more about the application process – you can register here.

You can learn more about our Widening Participation work by visiting our webpages and view our annual report from last year. You can find out more information about the WP Fellow positions here.

Please note these positions are open to PhD students who won’t be in their final year from September 2019. Students who will be 1st Years in their PhDs in September are able to apply. .
