Life Sciences Industry Liaison Lab

Putting Life Sciences to Work

We are offering up to four match-funded summer internships for students to conduct applied research on your behalf. 

We will work closely with you to assess your requirements, and tailor the project to meet your business needs. 

Key features of the internships

  • High calibre students with up-to-date skills.
  • Jointly funded (£2,000 contribution).
  • Supervised by a University researcher.

Who we are

Here in the section of Life Sciences at Canterbury Christ Church University, we have a broad range of expertise across the biological and chemical sciences, with a strong focus on applied research. With our new Industry Liaison Lab, we seek to expand our activity to directly benefit businesses at Discovery Park.
