Following on from the successful 2017 TropINTERN program, JCU is now implementing the Australian Postgraduate Research (APR) Intern program.
A not-for-profit national program, APR.Intern provides PhD students with the opportunity to apply their research expertise to a short-term 3-5 month project, while gaining invaluable experience in an industry setting.
Details about the program, such as eligibility criteria for students, conditions for their academic mentor, as well as the Industry Partners can be found on the APR.Intern webpage.
Dr Susan Sobtzick from the GRS will provide student and industry support for the APR.Intern program at JCU, as well as align contract administration and candidate management with HDR supervisory and college requirements. Susan's hours are Mon – Wed 8.30am - 4.30pm and she can be contacted by email (GRS@jcu.edu.au or S.Sobtzick@aprintern.org.au) or on (07) 4781 5901.
