ZEE Lab Internship Program

Want a career at the forefront of the energy transition?

The Melbourne Energy Institute is establishing a new initiative called the Zero Emission Energy Laboratory (ZEE Lab). The ZEE Lab will grow MEI’s ecosystem of university and industrial researchers undertaking projects on different clean energy and transport technologies.
