Following on from the successful 2017 TropINTERN program, JCU is now implementing the Australian Postgraduate Research (APR) Intern program.
APR.Intern is the only national all sector – all discipline internship program placing PhD students into industry.
A not-for-profit program, APR.Intern is open to women and men with an emphasis on gender equity, domestic, regional and disadvantaged PhD students into STEM internships.
APR.Intern provides PhD students with the opportunity to apply their research expertise to a short-term 3-5 month project, whilst gaining invaluable experience in an industry setting.
The program’s industry partners include ANZ, Telstra, Defence Science and Technology Group, Office of the Chief Scientist and more. Read about the impact APR.Intern PhDs have made when matched with industry here.
Details about the program can be found on the APR.Intern webpage.
Mr Michael Koczyrkewycz 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. Michael can be contacted by email (GRS@jcu.edu.au or firstname.lastname@example.org) or on 0412 860 824.
If you already know who you want to do your internship with and you have discussed this opportunity with your industry partner, you can submit a general application. Please fill out an EOI here and Michael will get in touch.
