The Global Change Youth Research Program provides students under 25 with an opportunity to gain research experience working alongside some of the university’s leading academics and researchers. By participating, you’ll be able to extend your knowledge of an area of interest and develop your analytical, critical thinking, and communication skills.

The projects will run intensively (20-36 hours a week) for 4 weeks in the Winter vacation period, and then for the equivalent of one day a week during semester 2, 2022.

Students must be enrolled in a program of study at UQ at the time of application and maintain ongoing enrolment in a program at UQ for the entirety of semester 2, 2022.

The School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work is only offering one project (detailed below).  However, there are 62 projects being offered across the university and you are free to apply for any of them if you meet the criteria.  You can find a link to other projects here

The placement will be awarded competitively, and role allocation is decided by the school. If you are interested in applying please contact Dr Lynch directly to discuss.
