If you are a student interested in gaining first-hand experience of vaccine research and development, you might consider undertaking an internship at the Jenner Institute.
This may be particularly relevant for students who are considering doing a PhD and who would like to experience the type of research undertaken at the Institute before deciding where to apply.
We are always interested in hearing from motivated applicants, who should have a relevant academic background and appropriate future research plans in order to make the internship a mutually beneficial experience.
