Description:
The Center for Oldest Ice Exploration (COLDEX) is an NSF Science and Technology Center based at Oregon State University with partners across 14 different institutions. COLDEX has the mission to:

-Explore Antarctica for the oldest possible ice core to discover what Earth's climate was like over 1 million years ago.

-Share how our ice core research helps answer questions about the current state of climate change through effective science communication.

-Increase the diversity of future polar researchers through inclusive educational programs like this REU!

What will your summer look like with the COLDEX REU?

-You will work in a COLDEX research lab with COLDEX researchers working on topics in either Antarctic ice core chemical analysis, oldest ice exploration, ice flow modeling, or science communication. Note: the COLDEX REU does not include field work in Antarctica.

-You will participate in an online orientation at the beginning of the summer and meet virtually each week with the REU cohort for professional development workshops and other group activities.

-You will have the opportunity to get involved in discussions about the future of COLDEX research through monthly research seminars and meetings.

What does participation in the COLDEX REU include?

-A $6,000 stipend for approximately 10 weeks of full-time research work (exact dates of the REU will depend on student and mentor agreed schedule).

-Roundtrip travel to your host institution.

-Up to $150 per week for housing at your host institution.

-Roundtrip travel to the in-person COLDEX annual meeting in September at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon.
