From late 2017, AMSI Intern will place some of the nation’s brightest science, technology, engineering and maths PhD students in real-world three to six-month research projects with DST Group.

"AMSI welcomes this partnership as a signal of the Australian government’s commitment to fostering essential research-industry collaboration to secure future defence innovation capability," said Professor Prince.

“This partnership will equip some of our brightest minds with critical industry skills, vital as we seek to secure Australia’s future STEM research workforce."

AMSI’s internship program equips postgraduates to pursue industry career pathways while working with universities and all-industry sectors to increase awareness of the value-add of strengthened high-level research engagement.

The program also receives Department of Education and Training support through the 'Supporting more women in STEM careers: Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI) – National Research Internship Program'.
