Vacation job opportunities 2018

The School of Computer Science is offering paid summer vacation work for undergraduate students who are registered on an undergraduate programme in the School of Computer Science at the time of application.

The deadline for applications is 17:00 on Friday 20 April 2018. Allocations will be announced before the end of May.

All appointments will be paid at the rate of £9.52 per hour, subject to University HR Services confirmation.

The projects will normally be full-time, 35 hours per week.

The dates and duration of each project are given in the project details below but no project will start before Thursday 7 June (after exams) and all projects must finish by 31 August.

Each project will require the student to produce a short report describing the project, the outcomes for the School and the outcomes for the student and to create some web content for use by the School, details to be discussed with the manager.

Appointees may be asked to attend the two School Open Days on Saturday 29 Sept and Saturday 13 Oct 2018 to discuss their projects with visitors.

The projects and their managers are listed below. Please contact the appropriate manager directly ASAP to discuss any project that you are interested in before applying.

To apply for a project, email the following details to the relevant project manager by 17:00 Friday 20 April 2018:

  1. The name project you are applying for
  2. Your full name and Student ID
  3. Your Programme (e.g., CS, SE, CSwIE, etc) and year of entry
  4. Brief CV and a covering letter that outlines how you match the skills required for the project that you are applying for and what experience you have relating to the nature of project work to be undertaken.

We expect there to be several applications for each position, and managers will select successful candidates on the basis of their CVs, covering letters and in some cases a short interview. Project managers cannot inform any students that they have been selected until permission to work in the UK has been verified.

Multiple applications are welcome but each application must contain a unique covering letter.
