We're sorry but the summer student scheme has closed for this year.​ All positions are now filled, we are sorry if you have been unsuccessful this year, don't feel disheartened, we had a huge number of applicants. We hope that you will consider us again next year.

If you have applied, check back o​n these pages - we will post updates as the applications are processed. Due to the very large number of applications we might not be able to get back to you individually that quickly.

ISIS is a world-leading centre for research in the physical and life sciences. Our suite of neutron and muon instruments gives unique insights into the properties of materials on the atomic scale. We support a national and international community of more than 3000 scientists for research into subjects ranging from clean energy and the environment, pharmaceuticals and health care, through to nanotechnology and materials engineering, catalysis and polymers, and on to fundamental studies of materials.

The 6-12 week placements are paid positions and will provide successful students with an opportunity to work on a research or development project within ISIS Neutron and Muon Source. 

They are available to students eligible to work in the UK, who are registered as undergraduate students at the time of the placements – typically during the summer of their penultimate year. ​Those with degrees in Science, Engineering, Computing or Media/Communications are eligible to apply. ​

Applications will open around January of each year and close around March each year successful applicants will begin work in the summer of that year. ​
