Experience Postgrad Life Sciences offers paid 8-week research internships, commencing on 11 July and ending on 2 September 2022, to UK and Republic of Ireland residents who are studying at a UK or Republic of Ireland university for their undergraduate bachelor degree and are in their penultimate year of study.

This is a fantastic, financially compensated and supportive, opportunity for talented students who might not otherwise feel they can easily access summer research opportunities to:

  • get hands on lab-based experience;
  • develop a range of skills;
  • meet fellow interns, postgraduate students and research staff; and
  • learn more about how to prepare a postgraduate application.

All within a progressive and nurturing environment.

This scheme aims to widen participation at the University of Cambridge, by using positive action under the Equality Act 2010, where appropriate, to tackle the underrepresentation of certain groups. See our eligibility criteria for more details.
