LIC offers the Livestock Improvement Doctoral Studentship Programme, which focuses on top PhD (and possibly Masters) candidates as potential successors for key science roles within LIC. The Doctoral Studentship Programme will see candidates work on an internship within LIC for up to a year, then commence their post-graduate studies, possibly at an overseas university, fully supported by LIC. A relevant, full time position will be made available upon their return to New Zealand, and in return for this support, the successful candidate will be bonded on a year-for-year basis. Throughout both the internship and for the duration of the post-graduate study, progress of the candidate will be subject at all times to formal and regular reviews.
CRITERIA FOR SELECTION
1. Academic excellence with special emphasis on mathematics/statistics and science disciplines; should be accompanied by a recommendation from the relevant University Head of Department.
2. A commitment to working on an agreed topic.
3. The student is, or is eligible to become, a New Zealand citizen or resident legally able to work in New Zealand [during both periods of employment and no immigration issues with studying overseas].
4. Top candidates meeting criteria 1 - 3 above will be invited to an interview with the Selection Panel from LIC to confirm the applicant’s suitability for a future role with the organisation.
5. In addition to employment, LIC will provide the candidate with appropriate academic support and mentoring, as well as access to facilities to enable him/her to undertake the nominated programme of study and research.
