We are committed to equitable access to STEM education with the goal of empowering students and enabling educators to inspire the next generation of scientists, innovators, and trailblazers.
The future of our mission is reliant on nurturing and equipping the next generation. Through direct programming, nonprofit partners, and engaging our employees, we aim to enable educators to be advocates of genomics and inspire learners to envision themselves as our future STEM leaders.
Every year, Illumina celebrates DNA Day throughout the month of April. Together with schools, districts and nonprofit partners, we will provide educational programs and activities for all grade levels.Get Started

If you’re an educator looking to share more about career possibilities in genomics with your classroom, or a student wondering if a career in genomics is right for you, you’ve come to the right place.
With the help of our employees, we’ve created a series of career cards to highlight the diverse career opportunities in the field of genomics. These cards provide a snapshot of in-demand roles here at Illumina, including education requirements, average starting salary, and essential job skills.
We’ve also asked employees to give you the inside scoop on what their day-to-day looks like. Find out what they work on, who they work with, and just how varied the wide world of genomics really is.
Be sure to check back often. We’ll be adding more careers throughout the year.
