Singer Instruments: PIPS internship opportunity for BBSRC DTP students

Get involved in the development and testing of products at life science robotics company, Singer Instruments

Calling all life scientists, bioinformaticians, programmers and engineers! Do you want to apply your knowledge to product/application development during your PIPS placement? Learn how to: design robots; make a difference by doing market research; and develop concepts for new products. Get involved in development and testing of products and party with us after another successful product launch!

You will have your own research project, related to lab-automation, where you will use internal and public data to analyse a particular gap in the market, and ultimately help shape a Product Development Proposal. You will have Scientific and Research & Development advisors who will guide you. You will be integrated within a closely knit international Research & Development team, and will have the opportunity to share ideas and try your hand at product development, product testing, software development and marketing; the business is your oyster!

You will be mentored by one of the Research & Development team members, as well as one Senior Manager, who will do everything they can to ensure you have a positive experience.

The project will need to be presented to stakeholders – including engineers, programmers, managers and other non-scientists. You will need to be able to communicate complex scientific procedures simply and effectively.

Singer Instruments have hosted previous PIPS students, and like them, you will have the opportunity to experience many different aspects of our business. We always work with you to understand which areas you find most interesting, and where possible, nurture you within those roles. You will have the opportunity to shadow different roles that are well out of your comfort zone!

You will work with multiple people across departments, discovering new tools, systems and ideas. Furthering your understanding of how lab automation can support research and vice versa. Discover how new product ideas are taken from concept to market.

Gain an understanding of working within the robotics industry, across multiple business functions and of the laboratory automation market.

A small team means a lot of exposure. You will be interacting with international collaborators and board level management. Helping to shape products that will be used by laboratories all around the World!

Singer Instruments will cover any expenses that go beyond that of what we would consider required of a normal day to day role (e.g. travel and expenses to visit a lab in a different city for market research).  The company will also contribute towards accommodation.

Lots of enthusiasm and geekiness.
A strong interest in science, technology, robotics and innovation.
Must enjoy socialising and eating home-baked delicious snacks!
