Sussex Undergraduate Research Office

Updated 17 April 2020 

I am delighted to report that after consideration the Junior Research Associate (JRA) Scheme for Summer 2020 will be going ahead.   However, the restrictions imposed due to the Covid-19 outbreak mean the 2020 JRA projects will be undertaken in a virtual environment, they will be supervised remotely plus the associated JRA training workshops will all be online.  

The revised deadline to submit a JRA application is 5.00pm on Tuesday 12 May 2020.  If you have already submitted a JRA application and wish to revise it then please just let us know at that you wish to revise and resubmit your application.

We aim to increase research opportunities for undergraduate research within the university, to maximise the value of undergraduate research undertaken at Sussex, and to enhance the recognition and value of undergraduate research at a wider, national level.
