Year In Industry Scientists

We are Malvern Panalytical. We’re big on small.

We are here to unleash the power of very small things to make big things happen. Our technologies enable our customers to create a better world. Improving everything from the energies that power us and the materials we build with, to the medicines that cure us and the foods we enjoy. We partner with many of the world’s biggest companies, universities and research organizations. They value us not only for the power of our solutions, but also for the depth of our expertise, collaboration and integrity. We are a globally diverse mix of visionary thinkers, creative problem-solvers, and detail-loving geeks, united by knowing that when you can make the invisible visible, you make the impossible possible.

What’s the placement?

We are looking for the next generation of Scientists to join us for a year in industry. The placement is for undergraduates who will work within our Research and Development team as Assistant Scientists and Assistant Applications Development Scientists, based in Malvern, Worcestershire.

The Research and Development department consists of over two hundred Scientists and Engineers covering all STEM disciplines. We work closely together in cross discipline teams following agile methodologies with a focus on customer centric design. Our use of ground-breaking technologies and culture of innovation continue to contribute to the company’s success and growth.
