Technical interns wanted


Internship opportunities

The Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication (MCN) and its partner laboratories within the ANFF Victorian Node are seeking expressions of interest from suitably experienced candidates for an internship program.

Successful applicants will be partnered with an MCN industry client to perform work as part of an industry project.

Applicants should possess an undergraduate degree in a science or engineering discipline that is strongly linked to micro/nano technologies, and ideally be pursuing (or recently completed) postgraduate studies in this field. Successful candidates will be offered short-term projects on a casual, part-time or full-time basis, for duration of 2-6 months. Projects may be located at MCN or at any of the ANFF-Victoria partner laboratories.

To apply, please send your CV, detailing your skills and experience in micro/nano technologies (maximum of 2 pages) to by midnight 30 September 2014.

Industry clients wanted to participate

The MCN is also seeking expressions of interest from industry clients for participation in this co-funded intern program.

The framework of the program includes contributions from both MCN and the industry partner. Partners are able to select the appropriate intern for the project from a pre-selected group who have skills relevant to micro/nano technologies. Even though all interns will be closely supervised by a full-time process engineer on staff at MCN, the quality of work may be dependent on the skills of the intern.

Relevant activities should be short-term projects with a duration of 2-6 months and may be in a casual, part time or full time capacity, depending on the availability of each intern candidate.

Work undertaken at MCN as part of this intern program will be consistent with the MCN IP Policy, whereby all product-related IP is owned by the client and process-related IP is retained by MCN.

To partake in this program, please fill in the attached form with details of the project, estimated timeline and desired intern skills and submit it to by midnight 30 September 2014. Intern projects are expected to start in September-October.
