Lab Assistant Posts

We provide our Stage Two students with the opportunity to work in one of our research labs.Giving undergraduates first-hand experience of working in a research laboratory.

Our lab assistant scheme is flexible and allows you to work around lectures and study time. It runs during term time from October through to the end of Semester Two.

We'll pay you to work for up to a maximum of eight hours a week.

Approximately 20 posts are available each year.

We run the scheme in conjunction with our Research Institutes in the Faculty of Medicine.

What some of of our lab assistants thought of the scheme

Applying to the lab assistant scheme was the best decision I made during my undergraduate degree. I was very lucky to work alongside some excellent scientists.

Working as a lab assistant gave me an insight into how a real research lab works on a daily basis. It was ideal, as the flexible hours allowed me to plan work around my lectures.
