We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.

Summer Vacation Students / Paid Internships

The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), part of the recently formed UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), is one of Europe’s largest science research organisations. We’re trusted to support, enable and undertake pioneering projects in an amazing diversity of fields. Through world-class facilities and people, we’re driving ground-breaking advances in science and technology.

We now have opportunity for undergraduate students to gain practical work experience during summer 2019, while earning a generous salary. If you are interested in starting your career working at the forefront of scientific research, you could even be selected as one of our sponsored students and receive a payment of up to £6,000 per annum for the rest of your course.

Students can work for 4 -12 weeks at either the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (Harwell, Oxfordshire), Daresbury Laboratory (Warrington) or The UK Astronomy Technology Centre (Edinburgh) on projects relevant to their intended or current course of study, under the supervision of experts in their chosen field.

We offer an invaluable experience with exposure to world class science and technology, and the opportunity to develop working relationships that continue well after your placement has finished.

Applications for the 2019 Summer placements have now closed.

Applications for the 2020 summer placements with open in February.
