Diversity is important for the success of physics, see e.g. this article in Scientific American. The Institute of Physics (UvA) and Department of Physics and Astronomy (VU) want to stimulate diversity by offering about 10 specially-selected second-year Bachelor and first-year Master students of diverse backgrounds (e.g. the opportunity to explore their interest (of a career) in physics.
The duration of the internship is one month and will take place in July, for about 38 hours per week. Part-time internship over a longer period of time is also an option.
During the internship you will be part of one of the research groups within the IoP and assist there, or work on your own theoretical or experimental project. You will receive personal supervision, and we will also organize special events for the whole group. If the corona rules permit it, this will take place on location.
The stipend for the internship is 1000 EUR.
Who: motivated UvA/VU students who contribute to the diversity within IoP (e.g. socioeconomic background, gender, LGBTQ+, ethnicity, disability, or any other categories). Tell us how you will contribute to a more diverse environment within the IoP.
Procedure: Send your application in before 28 May 2021, by uploading via the link above:
Decisions will be made by in early June, and matching with a supervisor/project will take place after that. For questions, please contact Wouter Waalewijn.
Application from outside UvA/VU will not be assessed.
