Internships in ANSTO’s Minerals Business

Internships offer the opportunity to meet some of Australia’s brightest minds and the chance to apply theory and practice, in your chosen field, to enhance the value of your remaining study. Students bring fresh ideas and the latest in theory and practice to the workplace, challenge and sometimes improve processes and contribute in a meaningful way to the projects and activities.

The Minerals business is now recruiting for their upcoming 2020 Year in Industry Internship Program which is anticipated to start in late January 2020. 

The Minerals Year in Industry Internship Program is designed for students studying towards relevant scientific, engineering or information technology degrees. 

Students must have at least one full year’s study remaining in their undergraduate or honours degree at the completion of their time at ANSTO. As this program is a full time paid opportunity for penultimate year students, it requires individuals to defer study for the year.
