Life at Earlham.

Shaping the future of science, together.

Our people are at the heart of everything we do

We believe that our people are our greatest asset, and we want you to have the freedom to achieve your very best work here. As a young and vibrant organisation, you will have the opportunity to make your mark. We work on difficult problems and look for the brightest minds to solve them, but we also like to have fun and enjoy the work that we do and the lifestyle that comes with it.

We embrace cultures and diversity

Since we began in 2009, we have created a culture that we are proud of, centred on openness, technical excellence and innovation. We attract staff from all around the world who benefit from an environment that enables them to deliver world-class science alongside a supportive and social community. We are committed to the principles of the Athena SWAN charter, and value equality and diversity across our workforce.

Innovation is what we do best

We are always looking for the next breakthrough, and we invest heavily in exciting projects across science, technology and infrastructure. Our people know what it means to really push the boundaries and we work on some of the biggest problems facing mankind, like global food security and the health of living systems.

Perks and benefits

We can’t do what we do without our people, so we like to make sure they are looked after. We’ll give you a competitive salary and generous pension, health benefits such as on-site sports facilities and cycle schemes, and all the latest technology you need to get your work done. The NRP has a brand new nursery on site which is open to all EI staff and their children. For more information please contact
