Summer placement scheme

The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) 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 groundbreaking advances in science and technology.

Students can work for 4 to 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.
