As part of a broader organisational restructure, data networking research at Swinburne University of Technology has moved from the Centre for Advanced Internet Architecture (CAIA) to the Internet For Things (I4T) Research Lab.

Although CAIA no longer exists, this website reflects CAIA's activities and outputs between March 2002 and February 2017, and is being maintained as a service to the broader data networking research community.

Winter 2015 Internships at CAIA

Monday 22 June 2015  --  Friday 31 July 2015

CAIA is offering one or two internships over the winter 2015 break for students who are currently two (or more) years through a Telecommunications Engineering, Electronic Engineering or Computer Engineering bachelors degree at an Australian university (or an approved double-degree containing one of those degree programs). The ideal candidate will have a strong interest in IP data networking and be curious about research in Internet protocol design, development and evaluation.

The internship will last for 6 weeks, from Monday June 22nd 2015  to Friday July 31st 2015. Applicants are expected to be available for the entire 6 week period.

Potential applicants should make initial contact with CAIA by midday, Monday May 25th,  2015.

Successful applicants will work under the supervision of a CAIA academic staff member.


Internships are an opportunity to explore life in a research centre, collaborate with experienced academic staff and do a research project outside the boundaries of a regular undergraduate curriculum.  You will begin to appreciate the combination of discipline and imagination that drives modern data networking research.


A tax-exempt stipend of $475/week will be paid to each intern under this scheme.

This internship is limited to students who meet the following criteria:

The first application round is in four parts. (Yes, this is a modest screening process.)

Note:ASCII text (with .txt extension). Applications submitted in MS Word, OpenOffice, or any other format (including snail mail) will simply be ignored.

Final selection of applicants:

We may choose to use follow-up phone or in-person interviews to make our final selection. Where an objective tie-break is required, we will chose the person whose SSH key arrived first (in step 2 above).
