Life at Sanger Institute is unique. Set across 130 acres, just outside of Cambridge, our people are shaping the future by delivering life-changing science with the reach, scale, and creativity to solve some of humanity's greatest challenges. We have over 1,200 people, from 70+ nationalities. We know that the success of our institute depends on our people. We embrace everything that is unique about individuals and draw on their different perspectives.

We look after and nurture you throughout your whole career journey. Whilst we work very hard at what we do, we understand the importance of having time for family, friends, and, of course, yourself. We are proud to deliver a campus-wide employee wellbeing strategy and programme. The importance of good health and adopting a healthier lifestyle and the commitment to reduce work-related stress is strongly acknowledged and recognised everywhere. We provide a wellbeing programme that offers proactive and preventative self-help through participation in workplace interventions.

We also take great pride in our Campus and currently have many green initiatives to sustain our environment and surroundings, including our Energy Campaign, Award winning Green Travel Plan and Wetlands Nature Reserve.

Create a lasting legacy. Join us.
