Placements to provide valuable learning

An exciting new initiative has been launched by the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC to provide CRC PhD students with emergency management workplace experience.

The CRC's Student Placement Program is seeking end-user organisations to partner with a student undertaking relevant PhD research. The program will allow CRC PhD students to build a close relationship with at least one CRC partner by working with them, and allow end-user partners an opportunity to engage with CRC students and better understand the research that they are undertaking.

CRC Education Manager Lyndsey Wright said the program will provide many benefits for both students and end-user organisations.

“This opportunity will link students with end-user organisations who are interested in the research underway.

“Not only will the organisation and its staff gain valuable insights into how the PhD research could benefit them, CRC students will learn more about the day-to-day activities that emergency managers undertake, which will help them greatly both now while they are completing their studies, as well as post-PhD,” she said.

For more details about how you and your organisation can be involved in the Student Placement Program, visit the education section of the CRC website, or contact Michael Rumsewicz at michael.rumsewicz@bnhcrc.com.au
