BACKGROUND

APR.Intern is Australia’s only all-sector all-discipline PhD and Masters by Research internship program, connecting postgraduate research students with industry through short-term research placements.

Industry demand for postgraduate research students remains strong, and all PhD and Masters by Research students currently enrolled at an Australian university, are encouraged to submit an APR.Intern expression of interest.

Internships lead to increased employability by developing soft skills to support and complement research expertise.

Our industry partners include businesses of all sizes, from start-ups and SMEs through to government agencies and national corporations. See some of the businesses we work with here.

If a short-term industry research placement sounds of interest, please submit an expression of interest via the ‘Register Now’ button.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS

Please note that if a suitable internship is found, your expression of interest will be subject to University approval.

The intern will receive $3,000 per month of the internship, usually in the form of scholarship payments.

It is expected that the intern will primarily undertake this research project during regular business hours and maintain contact with their academic mentor throughout the internship either through face-to-face or phone meetings as appropriate.

The intern and their academic mentor will have the opportunity to negotiate the project’s scope, milestones and timeline during the project planning stage.
