CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science Student Program: university supervision

CASS staff appreciate the opportunity to work with university students and staff on projects that lead to honours, masters or PhD degrees. Traditionally, students spend most of their time at their university with, for Sydney-based students, approximately one or two days per week spent at CSIRO in Marsfield. For students out of Sydney it is common for them to visit for trips lasting a few weeks. It is usual for both the CASS and the university supervisors to take an active and equal role in the student supervision, but it is also possible for the CASS supervisor to concentrate on data taking and analysis parts of the project or, for projects based on the CASS supervisor's research, for the student to spend a majority of time working with the CASS supervisor.

The student gains various benefits for being part of the CASS student program. Such benefits are listed here and include travel support and the possibility for applying for CSIRO-based top-up scholarships.

If you have a student who wishes to apply to become part of the CASS student program then contact the student coordinator.
