Description:
The CIRES Summer Research Program is a paid summer research internship program open to undergraduate or graduate students interested in the research areas of the NOAA Global Systems Laboratory. The Global Systems Laboratory (GSL) is one of ten NOAA Research laboratories and is located in Boulder, Colorado. GSL research improves environmental prediction models, develops state-of-the-science decision support tools and visualization systems, and uses high-performance computing technology to support a Weather-Ready Nation.

The goal of the CIRES Summer Research Program is to give interested students a research experience at CU Boulder and the NOAA Global Systems Laboratory. Students with a variety of scientific and technical backgrounds can explore environmental or geosciences and learn more about how their skills can be applied to societal needs.

Up to 11 students will be accepted into the Summer program. Students will be paid to conduct environmental and geoscience research activities with CIRES and GSL scientists. Undergraduate interns will receive $750/week over 10 weeks and graduate student interns will receive $1500/week over 12 weeks.

The Summer program will be entirely remote due to uncertainties about in-person presence in the NOAA Global Systems Laboratory.
