The Garvan Institute Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) is designed to introduce students to a research laboratory at an early time in their career. The program will encourage students to work in the lab environment and run their own independent research project. The student project can be experimental and based in a laboratory, or analytical involving data analysis and bioinformatics.
This program will allow full-time and part-time university students to undertake a casual, paid research placement at the Garvan for a maximum of eight hours per week over six months.
About Garvan Institute Of Medical Research
The Garvan Institute of Medical Research has pioneered insights into some of the most widespread diseases affecting our community today. We have some of the world's best scientific minds under one roof, all working together to improve health outcomes for us all.
About the internship
Students will join one of the Garvan research groups and will either undertake a specific project or be involved in several projects and so develop a wide range of technical skills. They are supervised by a research scientist in a mentoring role and work alongside other research staff and students in the team. The project can be experimental and based in a laboratory, bioinformatical or statistical.

While the scheme is not a formal part of undergraduate coursework, it aims to provide a vertical integration of practical research into the undergraduate years. Students will be able to practice the knowledge and skills obtained in undergraduate science-based courses in this program and vice versa.

Save yourself from fraud!

If an employer asks you to pay any security deposit, registration fee, laptop fee, etc., do not pay and notify us immediately. Remember, Internshala doesn't charge a fee from the students to apply to a job or an internship & we don't allow other companies to do so either.
