AMSI Industry Internship Program
AMSI runs an Industry Internship program that aims to promote
the uptake of maths and stats skills by encouraging business entities (this includes govt departments) to
part with $3K per month to support an intern to work on a relevant research problem for 3 to 5 months.
Internship program details: if you have
- a clearly defined research project
- an Industry partner
- a post-graduate student or research fellow from an AMSI member institution
an academic mentor from an AMSI member institution
You are eligible to apply. AMSI will help you find any missing partner(s).
AMSI will tip in an extra $5K for an academic mentor (often the post grads supervisor) to keep an
eye on things and to assist the staff member develop a partnership with an industry partner that
could conceivably turn into a Linkage grant application or a straight out consulting project.
