Each year, more than 50 secondary school students are taken into our laboratories for a week-long placement to experience what the life of a research scientist is really like. These placements enable secondary students (15 years of age or older) to gain an insight into careers in biomedical research by allowing them to observe and participate (subject to safety considerations) in the activities of a research laboratory.
The Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute is a research-intensive institute and our scientists focus on fundamental research questions surrounding health and disease. Consequently, students who can show a passion for science and future careers in research will be viewed favourably.
In 2022 we are offering one round of work experience. The details, including key dates, are listed below:
Dates of placement: 19th – 23rd September, 2022

Work experience places in the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute are in extremely high demand and as a result, each school can select up to three students to apply for our program. Applications are to be submitted to Monash by Career Practitioners only.
