Our nine-week summer student programme provides bright, ambitious undergraduates considering a future in biomedical research with hands-on experience of what it's like to work in a research lab.
You will be paired with a postdoctoral supervisor, who will train and supervise you as you participate in institute life over the summer.
You'll benefit from a supportive and stimulating research environment, and scientific and transferable skills training. The types of techniques that you learn will depend on the project and could include molecular biology, cell biology, biochemical, biophysical and computational biology techniques.
The programme starts with an induction to introduce you to the Crick, working in its labs, and to each other. During the summer, you will work on your projects and have the opportunity to participate in various student activities including attending a workshop on finding a PhD position.
You will also receive training in scientific presentation skills prior to presenting your work at the Crick-Calleva Summer Student Symposium - a programme highlight at the end of the summer!
- be registered at a UK university, and studying in the UK for an undergraduate degree in a relevant discipline
- be in your second year of study at the time of applying and
- have the legal right to work in the UK.
There is no flexibility in the programme start date. You will receive funding equivalent to the London Living Wage during your placement.
