Student Opportunities

We have a number of student research projects, spanning a wide range of disciplines from science and engineering to economics.

You can download the booklet which describes the research projects | . The booklet also contains information on the breadth of activities undertaken at NMI, different opportunities for student engagement and brief descriptions of each of the locations at which the projects are based. The booklet also contains information on the breadth of activities undertaken at NMI, different opportunities for student engagement and brief descriptions of each of the locations at which the projects are based.

Projects will normally be undertaken under the guidance and supervision of NMI staff, with co-supervision from a university staff member.

Interested students are encouraged to complete the application form and forward to students@measurement.gov.au, together with a copy of their academic transcript, resume and a covering letter, by the dates shown below.  Please note that incomplete applications will not be considered.

For further information, please contact Cheryl Lim, tel: 02 8467 3845 or cheryl.lim@measurement.gov.au.
