Paid Internships at Canon

Each year we run a three-month paid internship programme between June and September. This is an excellent opportunity to gain relevant work experience through joining a dynamic, innovative team developing industry-leading medical imaging solutions. The work is fast-paced and intellectually stimulating.

Internships are typically available in R&D or Radiography. Further details about the types of internships we offer are below:

Software Engineering, Imaging Science and Machine Learning

A number of positions are available, working within diverse project teams across the R&D division. Topics typically cover areas such as:

  • Application development
  • Software infrastructure
  • Image Analysis
  • Visualisation and rendering
  • Artificial Intelligence


The internship focuses on the identification of anatomical structures in medical imaging scans. The output will be used as an input to the development and validation of advanced image processing algorithms. In addition to an excellent academic record, sound knowledge in medical imaging and human anatomy is also beneficial.
