Are you looking for a bright student to take on a research project in your lab?

Round 2 - 2017  Call for Projects and Student Applications 

Project submission deadline: 15 August - deadline extended!
Student Applications open: 31 July to 15 August

Project submission for supervising students in the next round of intake into the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) are now being invited. 
Closing date for Project Submissions is 15 August 2017 - deadline extended!

The students will be available to commence work in laboratories during the universities’ summer recess. Actual start dates are arranged by the supervisor and student. Biomedical Research Victoria, through the UROP Program, will co-ordinate the call for applications from students and conduct the initial screening interviews. Suitable candidates will then be introduced to individual supervisors by the Engagement Manager.

Under the scheme, students are employed by your institution as casual staff at a rate equivalent to HEW 2 (~$34 per hr). Students must work full-time during some or all of the vacation periods (recommended approx. 4 weeks during the summer recess) and 8 hours a week during semester. Individual supervisors should seek approval to host UROP students in accordance with their institution’s internal process for casual staff appointments.

The UROP Project Submission Form is linked here. Please consider the questions on the form carefully so that we can match you as accurately as possible. (Only one form needs to be submitted per project.) This form will be provided to prospective students once they have passed the initial selection process.

Note that by submitting the Project Submission Form, Biomedical Research Victoria assumes that you will be able to accommodate a UROP student. Late withdrawal of projects may unfairly disadvantage students.

Please return completed forms to by the closing date.

More information on the UROP scheme is available at 

If you have further enquires send an email to or contact Dr Viviane Richter, Engagement Manager (9035 5082) or Debbie Dorfan (9035 5132).
