AIC research intern program
The Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) is currently seeking applications from interested eligible students.
The AIC offers a Research Intern Program for periods of up to four weeks working directly with senior staff.
During the year the AIC also considers ad hoc requests from higher education, justice and law enforcement agencies to allow students to complete a placement at the AIC.
Each application is considered on its merits, taking into account the ability of the AIC to provide appropriate supervision, costs to the AIC (if any) and that the student’s proposed work fits with the AIC’s research program.
