Work Experience Programs 2022

Work Experience Programs 2022

Program Information

SAHMRI will offer two work experience programs in 2022. Each program is of one week duration with each day running from approximately 9:30am - 4:00pm. The programs may fall during your school holidays so please ensure that you are available to attend for the full duration of the program before applying.

Through this opportunity you will be exposed to a range of research programs across our Themes and have the opportunity to hear from world-class researchers about what they do. At the end of the program you will deliver a presentation reflecting on your experience to an audience of the researchers you met throughout the week.

To get more of an idea about what the week involves you can see the Student Guide and highlight reel from the September 2021 program. Please note this guide is provided as an example only - the schedule and research areas involved will vary for each program.
