How to join us

We have a variety of higher degree research experience opportunities on offer throughout the year for high-quality candidates. Current opportunities include:

Summer Research Experience Program

Our Summer Research Experience Program gives undergraduate students an opportunity to participate in a research project for approximately six weeks during the summer holidays.

The program is open to STEM students in second year or above, offers paid, hands-on research experience and the opportunity to explore the possibilities of research in materials science.

As part of your research you will receive funding equivalent to $335 per week. The period of eligibility for scholarship payments generally commences in mid-November and concludes in mid-February. Funding is not normally available for research taking place outside of the academic calendar, such as during Christmas break.

You don’t have to be a QUT student to participate. Contact us for more details and to find out how to apply.
