Student life is great, but taking time out to gain experience of the workplace can be both a rewarding and invaluable experience as you choose your path ahead. STFC can offer you the opportunity to make a difference from day one, while earning a competitive salary. Everything we do has an impact globally and our industrial placements and vacation opportunities are no exception.
We can offer an incredibly diverse range of Science and Technology placements such as working with accelerators, lasers, robotics, neutrons, nuclear analysis, beams and 3D printing in which you will be working alongside world leading engineers, scientists and technicians in highly collaborative environments.
