Francis Crick Institute

Ages 16-19 years only

On the right of this page you will find Job Descriptions for laboratory-based placements currently available for students aged 16-19 years. Students should apply directly to the Crick for the placements shown on this page. If there are no Job Descriptions currently shown on this page, please check back regularly as we will add Job Descriptions when new placements become available.

Applications for 2017-18 placements are now open.

Each Job Description states the dates that the placement is available, the type of work the placement involves, and what is expected of the successful student. Please download the Job Descriptions that interest you.

If you would like to apply for a placement, please download the application form, also on the right of this page. Note that the application form will only be available to download if there are Job Descriptions available.The application form asks for the following information:

  • your contact details and those of your school
  • the subjects you are studying, and any grades if you have them
  • your reasons for applying for the particular work experience placement

Once you have filled in the form, send it to your teacher to complete a brief reference on the final page. Your teacher should then email the completed form to the Francis Crick Institute at:

work-experience@crick.ac.uk

The Crick will be in touch in due course to let you know if you have been successful.

When applications are no longer being accepted for a particular placement, the Job Description will be removed from this page. If you have already downloaded the Job Description, you should complete and send your application promptly, and within five days of the Job Description being removed at the latest. Please check this page regularly, as new placements will become available later in the year which you are welcome to apply for.

Note that as the number of placements is limited, we cannot guarantee that all those who apply will receive work experience at the Crick. We recommend that students also consider applying for work experience with other organisations.

  • The Crick would encourage all eligible students to apply for a placement through the Social Mobility Foundation or Nuffield Foundation.
  • The programmes offered by these organisations are extensive and offer significant support in addition to the work experience placement itself.
