Air Quality, Atmospheric Chemistry, and Climate Change: Measurements and Modeling in the Pacific Northwest REU


View this Opportunity's Website 


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

Description:
The REU program goal is to provide undergraduate students in engineering and related fields an opportunity to participate in ongoing active research programs. Working closely with faculty and graduate students, the participants will gain hands onexperience with atmospheric chemistry measurements and modeling.

Who is eligible?

Participants must be currently registered at a two or four year college, and may not have received their Bachelor's degree prior to July. Women and members of demographic groups traditionally underrepresented in engineering are particularly encouraged to apply. You must be a U.S. Citizen or permanent resident in order to receive NSF funding.

Students at all levels of their undergraduate work are sought for this program, including students on the quarter system, and majors such as civil engineering, environmental engineering, as well as students from chemistry, physics, math, and other technical majors are encouraged to apply. Yes, we take Freshmen to Seniors, we do hope to have a broad mix of students at various levels of their college careers, so don't hold back from applying just because you haven't had any environmental engineering courses.

What you get:

In addition to gaining experience with instruments and/or models currently used in government labs, regulatory agencies, consulting firms, and graduate schools, you receive:

A stipend of $5,000 for the 9.5 week session and free housing

Travel assistance for travel to and from Pullman, WA

We will provide housing in an off campus facility, with a shared kitchen and recreation facilities for all students.
