Crown Research Institute Scion and Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga Research Internships
Closing date:  5 November 2010
Crown Research Institute Scion together with Nga Pae o te Māramatanga are pleased to announce their research internship programme for the summer of 2010/2011..
We wish to recruit two students to complete a 10 – 12 week internship programme. The aim of the internship is to develop research skills that align to a clearly defined research project by working with an experienced researcher.
Whilst Scion has a broad range of research programmes, there are currently five projects seeking skilled and enthusiastic students. These are:
1.     Community involvement in the planting plan of Riparian Strips on the Ohau Channel (Social Science; Plant biology),
2.     Culture values in well-managed forests (Social Science; communication skills),
3.     Cultural perspectives: biosolids reuse potential in Kaikōura (Social Science; communication skills) and
4.     Cultural perspectives on Rotorua’s GE Field Trials
These internships are open to Māori or indigenous students who are in their final undergraduate year, or who are in the preliminary stages of a post-graduate study programme within a scientific research area.
These are full-time positions, available for 10 – 12 weeks commencing around 6 December 2010. All applicants are expected to be considering a career in scientific research. 
The Capability Building Programme of Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga continues to improve and enhance opportunities for students to develop capacity and capability for research, leadership and associated scholarly skills. Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga contributes to increasing the numbers of Maori PhDs and to support student research work in many ways. If you pursue innovation, excellence, and leadership in science and technology, Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga and Scion strongly recommend that you apply.
