The optical systems group at Illumina performs research and development on advanced optical technologies to push the limits of DNA sequencing. The resulting machines find application in medical diagnostics and cutting edge genetic research.
In a 12-week internship, the intern will contribute to this research pipeline via the testing and screening of novel optical technologies, through research, designing, and building optical breadboard systems. These technologies integrate with sophisticated biochemical systems, requiring complex problem solving at the interface of physics, engineering, and biochemistry.
Applications are being accepted up to 16th December 2018, with assessment days scheduled last 2 weeks of January 2019.

Last year’s teams at the semi-final
Small but mighty team!
I mentioned this at inductions and we are now taking names for teams.
This is a business simulation challenge that our teams of physicists have done really well in past years, winning 3rd place out of 300 UK teams in London, 2017 (many of them from Business Schools). http://www.ubcworldwide.com/hall-of-fame/ . The School paid for travel and accommodation in London for the finalist team.
It’s a great opportunity to build work experience, commercial awareness, use the range of skills and experience that we know our physics and astronomy students have – and develop new ones. Students say it’s a great experience to be part of and brilliant for your CV. You also get a business mentor allocated to your team you can get advice from.
I am looking for thee teams in total – each team can have up to five members and must have a nominated team leader. Timing is a bit tight this year due to my work and office relocation demands so apologies for the tight turnaround and the different way of recruiting teams from last time.
If you are interested, get a team together as soon as you can (it doesn’t have to be all physics and astronomy students in the team)
I just need 3 team leaders names and emails asap (definitely by 5pm on 25th October) so that teams can participate in the optional Trial Trading Period, during which you can familiarise themselves with the UBC resources and ‘have a go’ at running your simulated business.
I will keep in touch throughout
