Summer research lab experience

If you're thinking about a career in science and want to gain experience in cutting-edge research you should consider coming to work with us on our Summer Internship scheme. We are a small, friendly department, located in the heart of London.

What are the benefits of a summer internship with us?

  • You'll be part of one of our interdisciplinary research teams working in a group headed by world-leading experts in their fields.
  • You'll gain experience of some key scientific research techniques: X-ray crystallography; electron microscopy; single molecule biophysics; computational biology.
  • You'll be able to swap experiences with fellow students and get careers advice from mentors.
