Summer and Winter Research Programs

The UQ Poche Centre facilitates a range of research opportunities for undergraduate, honours and masters by coursework students through the Summer and Winter Research Programs each year.

These programs provide you with an opportunity to gain research experience working alongside some of the university’s leading academics and researchers. All Research scholars are eligible to apply for a scholarship for the duration of their research.

Broad requirements for the Poche Centre Research Scholarships are:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students are especially encouraged to apply
  • Students must be currently enrolled at UQ at the time of application. Students can be in their first year of study
  • Students should have a high level of academic achievement (GPA above 4.0)

It is expected that scholars will work a minimum of 20 hours per week for at least four weeks. Please note that some positions require scholars to work on a full-time basis (up to 36 hours per week), and the expected workload is set by each supervisor. The scholar and the supervisor are able to negotiate the duration of the project and the workload requirements. Examples of previous projects are listed below.

Further information for applicants is available on the UQ Student Employability Centre website. For a chat about project opportunities at the UQ Poche Centre please email poche@uq.edu.au.
