The new GLOSS Research Associate scheme launched in February 2016 and is now open to applications from academic staff and students across the Faculty of Social Sciences.

Global Learning Opportunities in the Social Sciences (GLOSS) offers funded opportunities for Faculty of Social Sciences undergraduate students to work as a GLOSS Research Associate during part of the summer vacation. Undergraduate students from any of the Faculty's departments and who are not in their first or final years of study are eligible to apply.

Students work in partnership with an academic member of staff whose research interests align with theirs to produce an inspired piece of international research.

The students are paid a bursary of £1080 to undertake their project. There is also an additional £900 which can be claimed by the student in expenses, and up to £1000 which can be claimed for the academic to visit the student in the field.

The application deadline is midday on the 15th April 2016.
