Experience the working life of ICRAR’s astronomers, engineers and educators with a work experience placement. Our work covers many different areas, all related to astronomy and astrophysics, including computing and engineering.

During a work experience placement students will experience the variety of work ICRAR does and get a taste of what a day in the life of an astronomer/engineer is like.

How to organise a placement

ICRAR offers a limited number of work experience places for high school students. ICRAR is a diverse and welcoming workplace, and we specifically encourage young women and Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander students to consider joining us for our work experience program.

We run work experience programs for Year Ten students in April, July and September during the school holidays, and during Term 4 in November.

Applications for our 2023 work experience program are now closed.

What’s involved?
