The School of Physics and Astronomy has a highly active outreach and recruitment team, delivering a wide range of activities to widen participation in higher education, enhance science education and strengthen the relationship between Queen Mary and the wider community.
The School of Physics and Astronomy is seeking to award a summer internship offering experience in web programming and particle physics. The Intern will contribute to the development of a prototype web app for enhancing science teaching delivery in secondary schools. The internship is full time (35 hours per week) and will run for up to 10 weeks over the summer of 2016. The pay rate for the internship is £9.50 per hour (£17,328 per annum pro rata).
