This is an excellent undergraduate research opportunity to work with a
really great research center at the National Center for Earth-surface
Undergraduate students in Civil Engineering, Geology, Biology, Ecology,
Hydrology, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and related fields are invited to
apply to participate in NSF-sponsored summer research at the National Center
for Earth-surface Dynamics.
Program dates: June 7 to August 13, 2010
Application Deadline: February 20, 2009
Students work on one of two interdisciplinary teams: "Team Delta" focuses
on issues in coastal Louisiana (www.wbi.lsu.edu) and "Team Marmot" focuses
on issues related to the 2007 removal of the Marmot dam on Oregon's Sandy
River (www.marmotdam.com). Both teams spend June at the St. Anthony Falls
Laboratory (SAFL) (www.safl.umn.edu), at the University of Minnesota, using
experimental modeling to develop an understanding of the physical and
biological processes they will explore in the field. The teams then perform
field research in July, returning to Minnesota to synthesize their research
in posters and papers.
All expenses are paid and students will receive a stipend. Students from
groups underrepresented in the sciences are encouraged to apply.
