Year in Industry Programme

Each academic year Earlham Institute welcomes up to two undergraduate students to join us for a placement on our Year in Industry programme.

The placement provides students with an opportunity to develop skills and experience, supporting future PhD applications and career development.

Applications are open from 1 - 31 October annually. Read on to discover more about how the Year in Industry programme works, and how to apply.

Applications via: yii@earlham.ac.uk

Following an initial induction period settling into the Institute, the two successful students will have the opportunity to select a project to focus on. Projects will depend upon the selection available at placement commencement.

These projects may focus entirely on computational methods of data analysis, or they may include laboratory work developing innovative methods to address a specific biological question, spanning from experimental design, protocol optimisation, and leading to data analysis.


“It’s a good chance to get out into research or industry and get experience before you graduate. It’s also fun, and a really good chance to use what you’ve been taught at uni - and see what interests you.”
