Internships – Applications Open

The Australian Plant Phenomics Facility is enthusiastic about highly motivated and research focussed postgraduate students joining its team as interns. In order to attract the very best students, we provide postgraduate internship grants.

Applications close 30 April 2016. For further information click here.

The Australian Plant Phenomics Facility (APPF) underpins innovative plant phenomics studies to accelerate the development of new and improved crops, healthier food and more sustainable agricultural practice by providing researchers with access to high quality plant growth facilities and state-of-the-art automated phenotyping capabilities in controlled environments and in the field.

The facility involves two quite different but highly complementary research facilities; The Plant Accelerator in Adelaide and the High Resolution Plant Phenomics Centre (HRPPC) in Canberra.  To help accelerate research outputs, our phenomics technologies are supported by experts from a number of fields, i.e. agriculture, plant physiology, biotechnology, genetics, horticulture, image and data analysis, mechatronic engineering, computer science, software engineering, mathematics and statistics.

APPF postgraduate internship grants involve access to the facility’s phenotyping capabilities to undertake collaborative projects and to work as an intern with the APPF team to learn about experimental design, image and data analysis in plant phenomics.

Selection is based on merit. Applications are assessed on the basis of academic record, research experience and appropriateness of the proposed research topic. Interviews may be conducted.

Interstate students are strongly encouraged to apply! Internship awards include support towards airfare and accommodation.
