Summer students

Applications for the 2018 Crick-Calleva Summer Student Programme will open in early January 2018. Interviews will be held in early April 2018.

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 the Crick-Calleva Summer Student Programme, which is aimed at bright, ambitious undergraduates who are considering a future in biomedical research. These 8-week placements give students hands-on experience and a true feel of what it's like to work in a research lab. Students are paired with postdoctoral supervisors, who provide attentive training and supervision as the students participate in institute life over the summer.

Summer students benefit from well-resourced research labs, state-of-the-art science technology platforms, a supportive and stimulating research environment, and scientific and transferable skills training. The types of techniques learnt will depend on the project and may include molecular biology, cell biology, biochemical, biophysical and computational biology techniques
