Australian Postgraduate Research (APR) Intern (formerly AMSIIntern), is the only national all sector – all discipline internship program placing PhD students into business.

A not-for-profit program, APR.Intern is open to women and men with an emphasis on gender equity, domestic, regional, Indigenous and disadvantaged PhD students into STEM internships.

We are driving innovation and accelerating women in STEM through short-term industry and university research collaborations.

A new rebate for industry will assist in the placement of 1400 PhD students into Australian businesses by 2020. These internships are supported by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training, through the ‘Supporting more women in STEM careers: Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI) − National Research Internship Program’.

Both industry and academia are set to benefit, businesses will access specialist research expertise through the PhD and academic mentor team, while students gain invaluable experience in an industry setting.

Working at the nexus between industry and academia, APR.Intern is a not-for-profit program, open to all universities and industry sectors including small-to-medium and large enterprise, and government agencies
