On our 4.5-year programme you'll receive tailored on-the-job training from industry experts from day one combined with early responsibility to help you to develop and progress. You'll be working towards a Bachelor's degree (BSc) in Bioscience through a blended approach of day study and block release.

Your duties might include:
  • Working with laboratory animals so an affinity and caring attitude towards animals is critical
  • Based within the laboratory you'll gain technical, husbandry & welfare knowledge and skills required to run and manage in-vivo animal studies
  • Build knowledge of the range of animal models used within Pharma research
  • Learn how to use various state-of-the-art techniques and technology to use in studies and gain insight into a broad range of biology-based scientific disciplines critical to the drug discovery process
  • Supporting immunology and oncology projects that will eventually lead to the development of medicines for patients
  • Use of IT systems such as Excel and data capturing systems
  • Support and manage pre and post study paperwork

You'll be excited by the thought of:
  • Building your laboratory skills in an R&D setting
  • Working as part of a team of scientists
  • Studying towards your Bachelor's degree (BSc) in Bioscience
