A sum of £2000 will be awarded each year in the form of a bursary to cover the additional expenses of a two-month stay at Dunstaffnage and associated seagoing. The student will participate in many aspects of the laboratory’s fieldwork programme, such as:

  • equipment preparation and testing;
  • instrument calibration;
  • sample collection;
  • data analysis.

The emphasis will be on the acquisition of practical skills, and the student will be required to go to sea on any available research cruises. Supervision will be provided by senior scientists and technologists at SAMS. Hostel accommodation may be available at the laboratory.
The bursary is aimed at postgraduates pursuing marine science in British universities.

Administrative Contacts & How To Apply
