UQ Undergraduate Winter Research Program
IMB supports the UQ Winter Research Program, which provides an opportunity for students to gain research experience working alongside some of the university’s leading academics and researchers. Participation will extend your knowledge of an area of interest and develop your analytical, critical thinking, and communication skills.
IMB Undergraduate Research Projects are available in selected IMB Research Groups for between 4-6 weeks over the winter vacation period (from 13 June to 22 July).
Participation is open to undergraduate students who have completed at least one year of study, as well as Honours and Masters by coursework students. The program is open to students from The University of Queensland as well as other international or Australian universities.
All Winter Research Students will automatically be considered for a UQ Advantage Office Grant.
IMB regularly hosts UQ undergraduate students. See Testimonials.
For further details see the UQ Student Employability Centre website.
