Biology Special Interest Project - BIOL386

This unit is subject to a quota. Limited places are available. Please refer to the Faculty for further information

Through this PACE unit, high achieving students may be permitted to undertake an internship with a research facility in an area of biology that is of special interest, and in response to the research needs of that facility. The main objective of the unit is to expose students to the process of scientific research, either within the university or with an external partner, in the broad area of biological sciences including, but not limited to, the fields of marine and terrestrial sciences, ecology, molecular biology, physiology and behavioural biology. Prior to admission it is necessary for students to initiate contact with the partner organisation to establish a relavant project and then contact the unit convenor to advise of their proposed project and internal academic supervisor. Students are required to attend several workshops as well as undertake 80 hours of research within their host research team. Assessments have been designed to provide students with an understanding of the professional skills required to pursue a career in research.
