A four-year partnership with Defence Science and Technology Group (DST) will see APR.Intern place up to 100 PhD interns with Defence. From late 2017, some of Australia’s brightest PhDs will undertake 3-5 month projects to build essential industry research skills at the frontline of national security innovation. With a focus on gender equity, the internships are open to all eligible STEM PhD students with support from the Department of Education and Training through the Supporting more women in STEM careers: APR.Intern—National Research Internship Program.
“APR.Intern’s national internship program is a great opportunity to harness the potential of graduates with STEM qualifications. We at DST are very excited by this initiative and have stepped up to take advantage of this opportunity,” said Dr Alek Zelinsky, Chief Defence Scientist, DST.
