The Poultry CRC offers postgraduate internships to encourage young scientists to work in the Australian poultry industry. To be eligible, you must be a Poultry CRC Postgraduate and have submitted, or are about to submit, your PhD or Master’s thesis. There are two types of internships available, industry placement and overseas research placement. Internships will be awarded at the discretion of the Poultry CRC’s CEO.
Overseas research placements
Internships are available only for Poultry CRC Postgraduates. Stipends for PhD level applicants will be paid in accordance with the ARC Postdoctoral Fellowship rate. Stipends for Master’s level applicants will be paid at 80% of the PhD rate. A Poultry CRC mentor will be appointed to oversee the career development of the successful applicant and offer advice and guidance as required. All successful applicants must regularly liaise with their mentors during the internship period. Interested applicants for Postgraduate Internships should contact the Poultry CRC CEO, Prof. Mingan Choct, to discuss their application and obtain an application form.
Final year students, new bachelor degree graduates, or those who have recently graduated, are eligible to apply for the 12 month full-time graduate internships with industry partners in Australia. Internships must be negotiated (either directly or via the Poultry CRC) before they start. The CRC will pay 50% of the salary and 50% of the salary on-costs according to the employer’s offer. Areas to be covered may include processing, laboratory-based training and production. The internship will also cover the costs of flights and accommodation so that the Intern can attend Poultry CRC events such as workshops and conferences during the 12 months of the Internship.
In return, the CRC asks that the Intern acknowledges the Poultry CRC’s support when dealing with people in the industry, and undertakes to stay working in the poultry industry for at least 12 months after the conclusion of the internship.
Further information about Graduate Industry Internships are available from Liz Roan, Education Manager, Poultry CRC.
