Vermont EPSCoR Paid Summer Research Experiences: Research in Climate Science


View this Opportunity's Website 


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

Description:
The Vermont EPSCoR Undergraduate Internship Program offers students the opportunity to participate in current research conducted through the Basin Resilience to Extreme Events (BREE) program. Undergraduates will be matched with a research team working on the transdisciplinary BREE research program. In spring, research teams will meet together at a Symposium to share their discoveries through an oral or poster presentation of their research. Students will do full-time, authentic research for 10 weeks in one of the following areas:

Lake and Stream Ecology

Climatology

Water Chemistry & Microbiology

Soil Nutrients

Land Use Management

Environmental Policy & Management

Computer Programming

The range of research areas in which students may participate is quite extensive. BREE interns delve into research projects -an opportunity not often available during the academic year. Projects are markedly different from most course-based work in that they are open-ended and part of a much larger research program.We strongly encourage students from traditionally underrepresented groups, veterans, individuals with disabilities, and students from two year colleges to apply.
