Are you interested in natural history and science? Would you like to gain experience working or researching in a museum? If so, our new bursary scheme might be for you.
Set in a historic city-centre location, Oxford University Museum of Natural History has been a hub of world-leading research since its foundation in 1860. Our collections are home to a range of priceless zoological and geological artefacts, and our exhibits and events continue to inspire public interest in the natural sciences.
We are currently inviting applications for our undergraduate bursary projects, designed to give hands-on experience of working at the Museum of Natural History. The scheme accepts applications from groups who are under-represented in the museum sector and in the sciences of the natural environment. This includes disabled people; students from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds; and students from lower income backgrounds.
Each bursary covers a full-time, six-week project at the Museum, supervised by one of the members of our team. You will receive a total stipend of around £2,250 towards your living expenses, and accommodation will be provided free of charge at the Museum lodge. Projects will run at fixed dates between June and September 2022.
These bursaries are kindly supported by the EPA Cephalosporin Fund and the Carey Family.
