James Hill
"The Winter Research Program is such a valuable way for students like myself to increase their employment prospects. Once you get your foot in the door, one experience can easily turn into three."
Amy Bergman
"I was introduced to a UQ academic working on a similar long-term project of her own. I have since become her research assistant which is an incredibly fulfilling and enriching opportunity."
Simona Sarmiento
"Not only have I gained a wealth of knowledge in terms of technical and analytical skills, but I have made contacts with other students studying similar majors and staff members/post doctorates."
