Australian Gemini Undergraduate Summer studentships - how to apply

Applications by e-mail are strongly preferred. Please send your application as a single Word or PDF document attachment to the AGUSS Program Supervisor, Dr Stuart Ryder. The application should include the following:

  • A curriculum vitae, including name and contact details, and your e-mail address.
  • A full listing of university courses taken, including a transcript of academic record (if your university supplies only hardcopy transcripts, please scan it and send us the JPEG or PDF file).
  • A one page statement on why you would like to get one of these studentships, describing your background, and including an insight into your longer term career goals, and interests in astronomy/astrophysics/instrumentation. What is it about the Gemini South observatory that particularly appeals to you?
  • You should ask two academics who are familiar with your work to send us academic reference letters (do not include these within your application). E-mail to Dr Stuart Ryder is fine. The names and contact details of these referees should be included in your CV. The reference letters must reach us before the application deadline.

The closing date for applications is Wednesday 31 August 2016. Late applications will not be considered.
