Defence Innovation Network (DIN) has called for SMEs to draw on a pool of PhD students, along with university supervisors, to allow high-end tertiary talent to partner with industry through a series of three to five-month, tightly-focused research internships.
DIN partners with Australian Postgraduate Research Intern (APR.Intern) to offer NSW Defence businesses access to high-end PhD expertise, drawing on Australia's top university talent.
Students, together with university supervisors, come together from a range of disciplines to partner with industry for internships.
Two research internships are currently on offer across the engineering, IT, mathematics and statistics space.
Nowra-based Mellori Solutions is offering partnerships to eligible NSW-based students in the area of big data processing, analysis and visualisation, tied to an application date of 29 July.
The company specialises in the testing, training and operation of electronic warfare (EW) equipment, mainly utilised by the Australian Defence Force.
Varley Group is offering an internship focusing on the production of composite panels for military shelters.
Given the competitive nature of the niche, they are searching for someone who is able to carry out research on best practice shelter panel development in regard to light weighting, new commercially available materials, sufficient radio frequency isolating and lower thermal conductivity.
With an application date of 5 August, the posting is based in Tomago (though it can also be completed remotely).
