Postgraduate Student Internship Grants

The Australian Plant Phenomics Facility is enthusiastic about highly motivated and research focussed postgraduate students joining its team as an intern. In order to attract the very best students, we provide postgraduate internship grants.

The Australian Plant Phenomics Facility (APPF) is a world leading research facility aimed at underpinning innovative plant phenomics studies to accelerate the development of new and improved crops, healthier food and more sustainable agricultural practice.
Established under the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy, the APPF involves two quite different but highly complementary research facilities; The Plant Accelerator ® in Adelaide and the High Resolution Plant Phenomics Centre (HRPPC) in Canberra.
The APPF provides researchers with access to high quality plant growth facilities and state-of-the-art automated phenotyping capabilities in controlled environments and in the field.
To help accelerate research outputs, our phenomics technologies are supported by experts from a number of fields, i.e. agriculture, plant physiology, biotechnology, genetics, horticulture, image and data analysis, mechatronic engineering, computer science, software engineering, mathematics and statistics.

Conditions of Award
APPF postgraduate internship grants involve access to the facility’s phenotyping capabilities to undertake collaborative projects and to work as an intern with the APPF team to learn about experimental design, image and data analysis in plant phenomics.
Selection is based on merit. Applications are assessed on the basis of academic record, research experience and appropriateness of the proposed research topic. Interviews may be conducted.
Interstate students are strongly encouraged to apply! Internship awards include support towards airfare and accommodation.
