New program for 2nd Year PhD students

New program for 2nd Year PhD students

METS Ignited and the Industry Mentoring Network in STEM (IMNIS) are inviting industry leaders from the mining and resources sector in Queensland and Western Australia to mentor second year PhD students. It is hoped the program will expand to all states  in the near future as more university partners are engaged.

The IMNIS mentoring program will provide mentors the opportunity to help foster a culture of innovation and collaboration within the STEM sector, and 'give back' to their sector. The mentors will provide industry insights; the knowledge gleaned from years of experience working in an industry that can't be learnt from a job description or career counselling.

Particular emphasis will be made to the opportunities for PhD graduates to collaborate with industry in future roles, and work in both industry and academia.

PhD students will have the opportunity to increase their understanding of the sector and grasp linkages they need to be successful using their STEM skills in a professional network.

METS Ignited General Manager Education and Leadership Skills Sarah Boucaut said the IMNIS mantra of collaboration and innovation aligns seamlessly with METS Ignited's strategic objective of developing skills and capabilities to make the sector more competitive.

"METS Ignited and IMNIS are focused on expanding collaboration between industry leaders and research institutions. "More broadly than that, our partnership will support sector growth and help strengthen Australia's global competitiveness, " Ms Boucaut said.

IMNIS Executive Director Dr Marguerite Evans-Galea said the partnership with METS Ignited will extend the reach of the program's mentoring capability. "Collaborating with METS Ignited will open doors to more skilled advisors to support our program, break down barriers, expand the horizons of our future STEM leaders and extend their professional network" she said.

About IMNIS:

IMNIS is an award-winning initiative of the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE), successfully piloted in multiple universities in three states and was recognised in 2016 with a prestigious B/HERT Award.

In October 2016, IMNIS received a two-year grant to expand their program nationally in partnership with MTPConnect, ATSE and AusBiotech as well as KPMG and CSL.
