2018/19 Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre Summer Scholarship Program


The Peter MacCullum Cancer Centre is one of the world’s leading cancer research, education and treatment centres globally and is Australia’s only public hospital solely dedicated to caring for people affected by cancer. They have over 2,500 staff, including more than 580 laboratory and clinical researchers, all focused on providing better treatments, better care and potential cures for cancer.
This program is open to undergraduate students in STEM to undertake a 6 week research project using data science, computer science algorithms, modelling, statistics and/or maths to answer questions in cancer using big data from genomics.
You will work on a specific research project alongside senior scientists and other students, giving you the opportunity to apply and expand your skillset to investigate how cancer forms and help find more effective therapies for cancer. This scholarship program is a great way to gain experience in the application of STEM in real-­‐life health sciences research.

These are paid placements for six weeks, or 30 days full-time to undertake work during the 2018/2019 summer holidays.  You must have completed a minimum of one year of your undergraduate degree and be returning to undergraduate studies in 2019 to be eligible.

Applications close August 6, 2018.
