Eyre Peninsula internship in applied grains research (SAGIT co-funded)
Lead organisation: AIREP
Hub members and partners involved: EPAG Research, SAGIT
Project Category: Interns
Project summary: 

This project aims to improve the capacity of grains research, development and extension in the Eyre Peninsula region through the employment of annual interns within local research organisations.

In 2024, EPAG Research is hosting a recent graduate to work for 12 months as an intern/trainee in applied grains research, development and extension, located on Eyre Peninsula.  

During the 12 months the intern will gain skills in trial design, trial management, sampling, statistical analysis, general crop agronomy, extension practices including written and oral communication with growers and advisors, and event delivery. They will also have the opportunity to network and attend industry events (e.g. GRDC Updates).     

Under the supervision and mentorship of EPAG Research Director & Research Agronomist Andrew Ware, the intern will run a small research project, where they design, implement, analyse and write up a field trial relevant to growers in the region.
