Applying to run a UROP project – staff information session
The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme (UROP) is the University of Reading scheme that gives undergraduate students the chance to build their research experience, and staff an extra pair of hands to support their research work over the summer.
We have two sessions coming up for staff interested in finding out more about the scheme:
Wednesday 16 September, 13:00-14:00, Webinar
Wednesday 4 November, 13:00-14:00, Webinar
This session is intended for staff who are new to the scheme, whether they are new to the University or just haven’t been involved before. It will give staff a chance to find out all about the UROP programme and how the application process works.
Staff applying to be a Principal Investigator (PI) should be a permanent staff member or a member of staff on a fixed-term contract that runs until after Nov 2021. PDRAs can apply as a PI (with their supervisor as a Co-I) and PhD students may co-supervise projects (but not lead them).
Applications to run a project will open in October 2020 and details can be found via www.reading.ac.uk/UROP
If you would like to join one of the webinars please add your details to this form. You will then be emailed a link to join the webinar closer to the time.
