The Australia – Brazil PhD Exchange Program will provide Brazilian second or third year PhD students (Brazilian citizens or permanent residents) first-hand research experience in Australia, orientation to the Australian culture, and an introduction to the science and research infrastructure of Australia. The eight-week program will take place from Monday 4 April 2016 to Friday 27 May 2016.
The program is fully funded by the Australian Department of Education and Training and is delivered by the Australian Academy of Science.
The primary goals of the program are to introduce students to Australian science and research in the context of a research laboratory and to initiate personal relationships that will better enable them to collaborate in the future.
This program is administered in Brazil by the Department of Education and Training at Australian Embassy, Brasilia and in Australia by the Australian Academy of Science. The Academy coordinates the payment of allowances, orientation and debriefing sessions in Canberra, and helps participants to move to host institutions.
