Each summer holiday (December - February) ChemCentre offers paid work placements for university students in their third or honours year of chemistry.
The ChemCentre vacation work program will provide you with a unique experience, plenty of challenges and an opportunity to use the theories and practical skills that you have developed at university. On top of this you will be working with a team of people who will ensure this time is memorable.
Placements are advertised on the learning management system of WA universities (eg. Blackboard) and via Linked In, Twitter and Facebook.
Applications open in November. To be eligible you must be an Australian Citizen or hold an appropriate working visa.

Occasionally, ChemCentre will offer unpaid internships. Internships offer students the opportunity to gain valuable practical laboratory experience and learn more about the Chemistry workforce.
The availability of internships varies each year, depending on current projects and the laboratory's capacity for interns. This opportunity is open to TAFE and university students studying chemistry (or related course) in Australia or internationally.
For more information please contact us to discuss upcoming opportunities.
Unfortunately, ChemCentre is unable to offer work experience opportunities to high school students.
We have a strong community and secondary schools outreach program. Learn more about our Open Day and our Outreach and Education program now.
