Student short-term placements

While each year we always have many projects for undergraduate and masters students, ranging from a few months to year in industry projects, these are almost always set up in collaboration with university courses with which we have special arrangements. This is because a condition of the main source of funding we use for these placements is that they have to result in a report that counts towards a degree.

If you are interested in a placement at Culham please enquire whether your university department has a link with CCFE. We do occasionally have summer placements that do not have to meet this condition, in which case we advertise individual projects on these webpages and indicate how students can apply.

For those looking for a mechanical or electrical engineering focus, applications for a limited number of 10 week summer placements, commencing June 2019, can be made via a vacancy listed as “UKAEA Engineering Summer Placements” at the following link. https://www.ccfe.ac.uk/jobs.aspx

The closing date to apply for a 2019 placement is 28 February 2019.
