The Department of Environmental and Sustainable Engineering (ESE) and the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center (ASRC) at the University at Albany (UAlbany), State University of New York invites applications for undergraduate summer research internships sponsored by the National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates (NSF-REU) program.
The overall goal of the REU Site at UAlbany is to recruit U.S. undergraduate students, primarily from underrepresented minorities (e.g., women and first-generation/low-income students) and train them in conducting research on atmospheric sciences and environmental engineering solutions with a coherent theme to address climate change and environmental challenges.
The project consists of a ten-week summer program for three years, each year bringing together a cohort of 8 diverse students recruited from a national search.
Specific objectives are to:
- broaden the research experience and climate change awareness of U.S. students,
- increase student skills and knowledge on atmospheric sciences and environmental & sustainable engineering for solutions to climate change and environmental challenges,
- enhance student professional growth through collaborative research training, mentoring, and building professional networks, enhance student competencies in effective communication, self-confidence, professional adaptability, and leadership, and develop interest among underrepresented minority students in choosing careers in science and engineering.
- Stipend: $6,000 for undergraduates ($600 per week for 10 weeks) Travel: support for travel to/from Albany at the beginning/end of the internship, and to attend a conference Subsistence: housing and meals provided
