2018 Sandwich Student Programme

Applications for the 2018 Sandwich student programme are now open.The application deadline is 12 noon (GMT) Tuesday 14 November 2017.  

The Francis Crick Institute, an interdisciplinary biomedical research institute, is committed to training the next generation of research scientists.

As part of this commitment, we run a sandwich year placement programme for undergraduate students studying for a relevant degree at a UK university. These sandwich placements provide students with a fantastic opportunity to gain insight into life in a research institute as well as 'hands on' research experience to develop their research skills. Each student will be integrated into one of the Crick's research groups or science technology platforms for 12 months, working on a defined research project.

Students will benefit from well-resourced research labs and state-of-the-art science technology platforms, a supportive and stimulating research environment, and scientific and transferable skills training. The Sandwich Student Programme starts with an induction, to introduce the students to the Crick, working in its laboratories and each other. During the following year, students will be able to attend various internal and external seminars and participate in student training and development activities. Towards the end of the programme, students will receive training in scientific presentation skills prior to presenting their work at a Crick Sandwich Student Symposium.

Note that applications to our 2018 undergraduate summer student programme will open in early 2018.
