Applications for the 2023 Harry Smith Vacation Studentships are now open.

The Harry Smith Vacation Studentships, named after former Society President and champion of early career microbiologists Professor Harry Smith, offers undergraduate students the opportunity to work on projects across the breadth of microbiology. The studentships enable future microbiologists to work alongside scientists to gain insight into the world of research.

Vacation Studentships are a great opportunity for early and mid-career researchers to gain supervisory experience. Supervisors will have the opportunity to advance their project management, leadership and supervision skills, as well as gain experience in managing laboratory budgets and monitoring expenditures. At the end of the studentship, they will be able to exercise their evaluation and reporting skills by putting together an account of their experience.
