Year in industry.
EI’s Year in Industry programme offers something a little unique to undergraduates - an experience of life at EI through the eyes of a project. Our students spend the first few weeks at EI getting to know everyone and everything from project design and scheduling, to generating libraries and loading sequencing platforms, to downstream bioinformatic analysis, including assembly and annotation. Through spending time with a number of research groups, students gain an understanding of the wide range of projects taking place at EI. It is at this point that students are presented with a range of available research projects to choose from. This forms focus of their placement from mid-November to completion.
Applications for 2016/2017 are now closed. Applications for placements during the 2017/2018 academic year will open in early October.
