The Plant Biosecurity Cooperative Research Centre (PBCRC) currently supports 24 PhD students studying in a wide range of areas including entomology, plant pathology, epidemiology, evolutionary biology and community engagement. A full list of students and their research projects is here: http://www.pbcrc.com.au/education-training/students-projects
PBCRC offers students the chance to participate in an Industry Internship Program, exploring their future career options and building personal and professional networks. A number of our students have expressed an interest in undertaking an internship in science communication.
Partners hosting interns have the opportunity to work with some of Australia’s best and brightest researchers. Internships run for up to 20 days and may take a variety of forms including, for example, a research or problem-solving project, where the student and industry collaborate on a specific topic. Interns will normally be in their 2nd or 3rd year of postgraduate research and PBCRC will work with a prospective industry partner to place the right student and develop a suitable project.
If you or your organisation is interested in hosting a student, please contact Naomi at PBCRC (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss possible placements.
