The next Inside Diamond open day will feature stalls and activities, a short introduction to Diamond and a tour of the machine. We expect the visit will last around two and a half hours. Booking for open days opens 6-8 weeks in advance of the event. Click here for more details.
The 12 month ‘Year in Industry’ placement scheme allows undergraduate students studying for a degree in Science, Engineering, Computing or Mathematics (and who expect to gain a first or 2:1 honours degree) to gain experience working on a research or development project within an operational scientific environment at Diamond.
Students will have the opportunity to visit research teams based at Diamond and other facilities on site, and to participate in public engagement events. Training will be provided to allow students to give a short presentation on their work and to summarise their activities in a poster.
Students must be registered as an undergraduate for the duration of the placement and ensure that they can commit to the whole 12-month period. Placements in 2017 will be paid at a rate of £18,615pa and typically start during the summer of the penultimate year.
When applying, please pay particular attention to the experience required, and ensure this is demonstrated in the application form. Projects are usually designed to run for 12 months, starting from June - please note on the form if you have a preferred start time, and any dates you are unavailable.
Short-listed candidates will be invited to a student day where they will visit Diamond to be interviewed for one or more projects and find out more about our scientific and technical activities.
Placements in 2017 were available in:
Applications for placements starting in 2017 are now closed.
