The Institute runs a Secondary School Work Experience Program tailored to Year 10 students interested in exploring a career in research. This program gives students an opportunity to experience different aspects of the Institute including laboratory and non-laboratory based researched and meeting scientists in action.
Applications for the 2017 Secondary Work Experience Program (June 2017) will open on Monday 13 February and close Friday 24 February at 12:00pm.
The Program has an online application process and selection. Please note we get a large number of requests for work experience and therefore only a small number of students will be successful for our Program.
The Murdoch Childrens' Summer Student Program runs annually from November to February, offering eligible students a paid research placement of approximately eight weeks duration. To be eligible for a placement, students need to be undertaking a university degree, enrolled at an Australian Tertiary Institute, and are selected on a competitive basis. Availability of placements is subject to each Research Group's capacity to take on a Summer Student in that year. Applicants may be required to attend an interview.
Applications for the 2016 Summer Program have now closed. Information about the 2017/18 Summer Program will be available in August 2017.
