The Australian Plant Phenomics Facility (APPF) is inviting applications for its current round of Postgraduate Internship Awards.
Due to APPF staff schedules, the usual May 31 deadline for applications has been extended to 15 June for this round of Awards.
The Awards provide supported access to APPF world-class plant raising and imaging technologies in Adelaide or Canberra and are open to postgraduate students (typically PhD candidates) currently enrolled at an Australian university.
Each Award includes up $10,000 worth of infrastructure access plus travel and accommodation support for interstate students.
The range of resources on offer to students includes controlled environment growth chambers; 3D visual, infrared and hyperspectral scanners; X-ray CT (Computed Tomography) scanning, field phenomics sensing platforms; plus mechatronics, data management and computer science specialists.
Successful applicants receive access to equipment for their research, but also benefit from working alongside APPF’s experienced staff to learn hands-on skills in experiment design, lab technique, equipment operation, data analysis and more.
