Child Health Research Summer Internships

February 7, 2018

Are you interested in undertaking a research project this summer?

The Trustees of the Child Health Research (CHR) CIO have once again agreed to fund the Summer Vacation Studentship Scheme for this year. Up to ten studentships will be available for undergraduate students studying science or medicine with maintenance support of £190 per week for a period of up to eight weeks.

You must be at least in your second undergraduate year when applying and preference will be given to applicants who do not yet have any research experience and would therefore particularly benefit from working on a summer project.

These are not clinical placements and it is not possible to fund the costs of overseas visits. The projects must be based entirely in the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health.

The Institute’s areas of research are as follows:

  • Developmental Biology and Cancer
  • Developmental Neurosciences
  • Genetics and Genomic Medicine
  • Infection, Immunity, Inflammation
  • Population, Policy and Practice

Our laboratories are modern and well equipped and we also have excellent facilities for those carrying out research in non-laboratory subjects. You can find out more about the research carried out in the Institute of Child Health on our website

The Institute is located in Guilford Street and the nearest tube station is Russell Square (Piccadilly Line).

If you wish to be considered for a summer vacation studentship for work to be carried out in the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, please complete the Application Form which can be found on the Child Health Research Summer Studentship Scheme website and send this, together with a copy of your CV, to

Shortlisted applications will be forwarded as appropriate for further consideration. You can see reports provided by previous summer students on our website

Closing Date: FRIDAY 9TH MARCH 2018
