IRIS Internships in Seismology and Geophysics

published Jan 10, 2014 4:00pm
The IRIS undergraduate Internship Program is a summer research opportunity for undergraduates in physics, math, and the geosciences. Research projects vary annually but include the full spectrum of seismological specialties... earthquakes and hazards at the crust, to deep Earth studies of the core. Projects may also involve the deployment of seismic instruments in the field (within the US or internationally) and/or analyses of seismic data in a lab setting. The ultimate goal of each project is to produce results for presentation at a national scientific meeting. Participants receive high-quality mentoring, experience communicating their research to a broad audience, the development of a rich peer community, and opportunities to explore career paths in seismology.

Benefits include assistance locating housing, a competitive weekly stipend, travel and lodging at the orientation week, travel to and from your summer research location, funding for all field costs, and full funding to present your research at the 2014 Fall AGU meeting.

Apply your knowledge. Explore your future. Contribute to science.
