(1) If you are a UQ undergraduate or Honours student, who has completed at least one year of study, or a UQ Masters by coursework student, the UQ Summer Research Program provides an opportunity for you to gain research experience, by working alongside leading researchers, to develop your knowledge and analytical, critical thinking and communication skills. All successful applicants will receive a scholarship, as outlined on the program’s website.

(2) If you are studying outside of UQ, IMB offers a limited number of high-calibre students the opportunity to complete an IMB Summer Research Program, in order for you to be able to experience IMB’s research environment as part of your research career progression. Scholarships, of an equivalent value to the UQ scheme, will be offered on a competitive basis.

For both schemes, research projects are available at IMB for between 6-10 weeks over the summer vacation period (from mid-November to mid-February) and applications for both open on 9 July and close on 31 August 2018.
