The Earth Institute Undergraduate Research Assistantship Program - Deadline: (11/18)
The Earth Institute Undergraduate Research Assistantship Program
The Earth Institute is sponsoring 5 spring undergraduate research assistantships. This is a chance for faculty to start new projects without current funding, or fund supplements to ongoing projects. Research topics should be relevant to themes of the Earth Institute. These would include, but are not limited to, topics in Sustainability; Development Economics; Earth Sciences, Ecology, and Atmospheric research; or Environmental Policy among others.
Students will work part-time with faculty on current research projects, aiming to give them a valuable chance to collaborate on substantive matters of inquiry. Relevant research projects will be led by faculty, and the admissions committee will match students with projects based on their interests and abilities. Students will be paid $15 per hour, for up to 10 hours of work per week, through Earth Institute funds for a total of 120 hours.
Applications for funding will be reviewed by a committee and decisions should be announced by December 1. Upon selection, internships will be advertised to students and all resumes received will be forwarded to you for your review and selection of a suitable intern.
Please note, only full-time Columbia University and Barnard College students are eligible for internships through this program.
To apply for funding, please complete the online application form at http://fs21.formsite.com/earthinstitute/form134/index.html by 11:30PM on November 18.
