Academic Level:
Undergraduates - First Year
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
The University of Michigan Department of Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering (CLASP) is currently seeking a highly motivated, diverse and inclusive cohort of undergraduate students to participate in its summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) site program entitled: Program in Climate and Space Science Observation (PICASSO).

The program is open to students from any academic discipline who are interested in exploring a potential career in the STEM fields of meteorology, climate, and space sciences. Program participants will work closely with faculty, research staff, and graduate students to engage in research from a broad range of disciplines, including: meteorology, climate science/adaptation planning, atmosphere-biosphere interactions, aerosols, atmospheric chemistry, air quality, space-based remote sensing, space-weather and planetary atmospheres.

As part of the PICASSO program, student participants will also engage in the following activities while on campus:

- mentored-guided research project, the goals of which will be designed with the participation of the students themselves,

- peer-mentoring performed by the department?s graduate/undergraduate students,

- professional development seminar series held in collaboration with other summer programs within the University of Michigan,

- community-building activities which will strengthen their relationships within the REU student cohort, as well as with other undergraduate groups within the university.

- end-of-program poster fair in which students will present their works to CLASP Department faculty and students.

Participating students will receive a $5000 stipend. In addition, the following costs will be covered as part of our program: (1) the costs associated with travel to/from Ann Arbor, (2) room and board during the program, and (3) costs associated with the registration, room and board and travel for the student?s attendance at one professional conference (AMS, AGU, etc.).
