We welcome undergraduate students from within and outside the University of Cambridge to gain hands-on research experiences on real research projects as a member of one of our research groups. Project placements can increase your transferrable skills, employability and understanding of the research environment.


Undergraduate summer research placements

Each year we offer up to 30 paid summer research placements for undergraduate students from across the globe.
