PhD research internships

At Monash Business School, we highlight the importance of industry collaboration while discovering new opportunities and solving global issues during the research process.

PhD research internships offer you the opportunity to apply and advance your research expertise by undertaking short-term internship projects with industry partners including enterprises, businesses, and government agencies.

Completion of an internship provides practical experience and professional networking opportunities, develops employability skills, and facilitates a greater understanding of career planning, professional development and employer expectations.

PhD Interns can receive up to $3,000 per month as a stipend (on top of a current scholarship) for the period of the internship.

It is important to start researching and planning early. You should start exploring opportunities and planning your internship with your supervisor during your first year so that the internship is secured and agreed to within your first 18 months. You will need your supervisor and faculty support to undertake an internship.
