Description:
The Cooperative Institute for Climate Science (CICS) is a collaboration between Princeton University and the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) to carry out basic research in the climate sciences.

CICS provides expertise and performs research in the climate sciences including climate change and variability, and biogeochemical cycles. Through its graduate and postdoctoral and visiting research program, CICS educates and trains future generations of scientists for NOAA and the nation.

The Cooperative Institute for Climate Science at Princeton University in collaboration with NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) is recruiting both undergraduate and graduate students for 8-10 week research internships in atmospheric, oceanic and earth system science. Awardees will work with host scientists at the NOAA/GFDL, a world-leading center of earth system modeling, research and prediction. Students with backgrounds in science, math, computing and/or engineering are encouraged to apply - no prior experience in climate-related sciences is necessary. Students will work on a focused scientific problem under the close supervision of their GFDL host, and benefit from resources and activities at GFDL, including interaction with scientists and graduate students, access to high performance computing and library facilities, and opportunities to participate in a wide range of seminars and lab social events. We particularly encourage applications from students who have not previously had the opportunity to experience scientific research environments, including students at colleges and universities without research programs, and students whose participation will add to the diversity of researchers in earth system science, including first-generation college students, and students from underrepresented groups.

Students will receive a stipend of $500/week (undergraduates) or $1,000/weed (graduate students), and reimbursement for travel from their home institution. Interns will have access to Princeton University rental housing. Applicants must be currently enrolled in a degree program, and either US citizens, permanent residents, or foreign students attending a US educational institution.
