Internships

Whether you are currently studying for a degree or have recently completed a course, an internship will help you gain that all-important, real-life industry experience.

Paragraf welcomes the fresh ideas and perspectives that early career scientists bring to the business (or more accurately the laboratories and clean rooms!). Working closely with our more experienced scientists, who were all in the interns’ shoes once of course, the teams push the boundaries of the science behind graphene electronics with exciting results. Our interns frequently have the opportunity to share the outcomes of their work with the rest of the business – opportunities are jumped at with obvious, and well-deserved, pride.

Students considering a technical career within our industry, gain valuable work experience and an opportunity to explore future career options. An internship is also an excellent opportunity to build professional networking connections and develop personal soft skills.
