Student and graduate opportunities

CSIRO Scholarships are our way of recognising and rewarding the academic excellence of students from high school through to doctoral studies. Our Postdoctoral Fellowships offer PhD graduates the opportunity to launch their scientific careers.

  • Postdoctoral fellowships

    We give PhD graduates an opportunity to work with leaders in the field of science, as well as offering generous personal development and learning opportunities.

  • Postgraduate scholarships

    Postgraduate students who partner with CSIRO to complete their PhD studies will gain access to world-class facilities and have a unique opportunity to work alongside Australia’s leading research scientists.

  • Industrial traineeships

    Tertiary students may complete their compulsory work placement with CSIRO, working alongside leading scientists to further their learning and build long-lasting professional networks.

  • Alumni Scholarship in Physics

    Applications are now open for the 2017 Alumni Scholarship in Physics, awarded to a post-graduate student.

  • Undergraduate Vacation Scholarships

    Our Undergraduate Vacation Scholarships offer students the opportunity of collaborating with our scientists. Applications for the 2016/2017 Undergraduate Vacation Scholarships are now closed.

  • Work experience

    We offer high school science students the chance to gain first-hand experience of our core research in a scientific environment. Applications for 2016 have now closed and will reopen in 2017 for next year's program.
