If you are enrolled in another undergraduate program, please check with a Stop 1 course adviser.

Vacation Scholarship

Usually Mid-Year or Summer Term
Undergraduate Science and Biomedicine students have the opportunity to undertake 4-6 weeks work full time on a project.

Explore stem cell research themes within The Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience.
Students will work in their supervisor’s laboratory on the design, execution and analysis of a series of experiments.
Student must have discussed the scholarship project with a supervisor in the department and have supervisor approval.
The student cannot be enrolled in BIOM30003 or SCIE30001 and the project work cannot be used for academic credit.

Summer Internships with the Centre for Stem Cell Systems

Students have the opportunity to undertake a project within the Centre for Stem Cell Systems.

Explore stem cell research themes within the Centre for Stem Cell Systems.
Project lengths may vary according to circumstances.
Students will work in their supervisor’s laboratory on the design, execution and analysis of a series of experiments.
Not for academic credit.
Second and third year undergraduate students and Masters students with an interest in research.
The student should contact the supervisor of the project/field of interest. Acceptance and project duration is determined on a case-by-case basis.
