For over 60 years, Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) and its predecessor the Australian Atomic Energy Commissioned (AAEC) have used nuclear science and technology to answer some of the fundamental questions about our universe, develop solutions for Australian industry and deliver significant health benefits to the approximately one-in-two Australian who will receive a nuclear medicine procedure in their lifetime.
ANSTO is one of the country’s largest public research organisations and custodian of much of the country’s research infrastructure, including Australia’s only nuclear reactor, the Open Pool Australian Light-water (OPAL) multi-purpose nuclear reactor, the Australian Synchrotron, the Centre for Accelerator Science and the Australian Centre for Neutron Scattering.
More than 500 scientists, engineers and technicians work at ANSTO to answer the significant environmental, health, nuclear fuel cycle and industrial questions using nuclear techniques.
ANSTO is committed to improving Australia’s understanding and engagement with Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine (STEMM) in order to help develop our future leaders and innovators.

- A significant investment in professional development
“I chose to work at ANSTO as it is an organisation that fosters growth, innovation and scientific development - all of which are the key factors I would like in a fulfilling career in nuclear science and engineering. Additionally, ANSTO thrives to give back to the community, and shows true environmental stewardship. These qualities made ANSTO a very appealing organisation for a recent graduate looking for a long-term career in nuclear science.” Marina
“ANSTO allows me to work in the fascinating area of nuclear science alongside a world-class outreach and communications team.” Michael
“The culture at ANSTO, the commitment to development and the incredible work done by all facets of the organisation makes ANSTO’s Graduate Development Program a stand-out opportunity for any young professional.” Kate
“I chose ANSTO’s Graduate Development Program as it would not only provide me with the ability to continue performing scientific research, but to also use that research to help the wider community.” Jayden
The ANSTO Year In Industry Internship Program
Designed for students studying towards relevant scientific, engineering or information technology degrees who have at least one full year’s study remaining in their undergraduate or honours degree at the completion of their time at ANSTO.
The program gives them the chance to apply the theory and practice of their chosen field in the context of the reality of the workplace, develop a work ethic (especially related to quality and safety) and use this experience to enhance the value of their remaining study.
Internships at ANSTO
Internships at ANSTO offer not only the opportunity to meet some of Australia’s brightest minds but the chance to apply theory and practice, in your chosen field, to enhance the value of your remaining study.
ANSTO are currently accepting expressions of interest from top performing students within science, engineering and corporate services wanting to explore internship opportunities.
