In January 2020, CSIRO Education and Outreach assumed responsibility for administering the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP).

UROP has a proud history in Victoria’s biomedical research industry, facilitating more than 700 undergraduate student job placements at over 50 organisations across the state. CSIRO has been a long-term participant in the program.

CSIRO Education and Outreach will trial the program in 2020, providing Victorian undergraduate students with paid work placements in research organisations. Through the program students gain an insight into biomedical research careers, valuable hands-on experience; and expertise in laboratory techniques. At the same time the scheme enhances the biomedical research industry’s workforce capability by attracting high performing students and building the skills needed for a career in research.

UROP students in the program are employed by the hosting organisation or institution. More information on the application process and timeline will be available soon. In the meantime, please contact
