One of our missions is to use our expert knowledge of plant and microbial biology to provide training to scientists throughout their careers.
Research and Support Staff play an essential and important role at the John Innes Centre. In recognition of this, the John Innes Centre is Science Council Employer Champion.
As an Employer Champion the JIC will encourage career development for all its Research and Support Staff. This includes encouraging professional registration as a Registered Science Technician, a Registered Scientist, or a Chartered Scientist. The JIC will encourage all staff, who are eligible, to join the Science Council’s professional register.
Chris Lamb Training Suite
The Chris Lamb Training Suite, named after the former director of the institute, offers high specification training facilities to scientists at every stage of their career, with a full training laboratory, as well as an IT suite and lecture theatre.
It is the central hub for the majority of the training activities that take place at the John Innes Centre each year, including the International Undergraduate Summer School.
