Brian Duff Undergraduate Summer Research Studentships
The Department of Physics and Astronomy are offering 15 studentships to undergraduates interested in pursuing research projects over the summer, generously funded by the family of Brian Duff. The key aims of the studentships are to give motivated undergraduates the opportunity to work on a research project, gain experience developing and writing a research proposal and presenting their research to their peers.


  • Applicants should be undergraduates in the department of Physics and Astronomy or UCL Natural Sciences undergraduates with Physics as main stream.
  • The main supervisor of the project must be a current academic in the department of Physics and Astronomy. 
  • Deadline for applications is Monday 19th April 2021, 9am. 

The Department of Physics and Astronomy is split into five Research Groups (see below) and details of how the studentships will be implemented may vary from group to group. Please see individual research group pages for further information and applications instructions:
