Undergraduates - Junior

Description:
A research project is at the heart of the Summer Student Fellowship program at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. All Fellows are expected to work on a project selected in collaboration with their sponsor(s) that will provide meaningful results in one summer's work. Project topics span the vast spectrum of research in ocean sciences and engineering conducted in WHOI's science departments and the Woods Hole Field Station of the U. S. Geological Survey (USGS).

Fellowship recipients have the opportunity to attend and participate in a busy schedule of talks, seminars and a hands-on, one-day, ocean sampling cruise on board the R/V Tioga focusing on data collection and sampling methods with advanced oceanographic technology and instruments. The cruise is especially designed for Fellows and not only provides practical training but also brings the group together socially through a shared field experience.

Fellows also have many occasions to interact with current MIT/WHOI Joint Program graduate students in the laboratory and during both the Q&A session designed specifically for that purpose and the Ethics in Science Workshop.

WHOI actively recruits underrepresented minorities in the ocean sciences as defined by the National Science Foundation (African-, Hispanic- and Native-Americans, and Pacific Islanders) in all of our education programs.

The program duration is a minimum of 10 weeks and a maximum of 12 weeks. The start and end dates are flexible - most students arrive between the end of May to mid-June. More information can be obtained by contacting education@whoi.edu.
