(Apply by Feb. 1; June 10-Aug. 5, Boulder, Co.)
The University of Colorado invites sophomore and junior undergraduates to apply for a summer research experience for highly motivated students interested in solar and space physics. Students will work with scientists at the University of Colorado’s Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) or at the National Center for Atmospheric Research’s (NCAR) High Altitude Observatory (HAO), NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC), the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), or North West Research Associates (NWRA) on projects spanning the field of solar and space physics, from instrument hardware to data analysis to modeling of the Sun-Earth system.
The program begins with a summer school in solar and space physics and continues with seminars and discussions while participants work at one of the participating laboratories, providing peer-to-peer collaboration opportunities. Participants will present their research findings at the end of the summer. Participants will receive $500 a week, plus dorm housing and a food allowance. A travel stipend of $500 will also be provided. For more information and to apply, please visit http://lasp.colorado.edu/home/education/reu/.
