Are you an undergraduate interested in working on a seismological research project for the summer?

If so, consider applying for a PAID summer internship in the IRIS Summer Undergraduate Internship!

Once selected, your summer experience will begin with a one-week orientation held on the campus of an IRIS institution the last week of May (for those students whose quarter has not yet completed, alternative arrangements can be made). The goal of the orientation period is to develop a strong sense of community among interns, provide training in distance collaboration and introduce you to some of the most exciting aspects of modern seismology.

Following this week you will spend 8 to 10 weeks working on a seismological research project with researchers at an IRIS member intuition. Research projects may involve the deployment of seismic instruments in the field (within the US or internationally), and/or analyses of seismic data in a lab setting with the ultimate goal of producing results to be presented at a national scientific meeting. Each project will provide you with ample opportunities to:

* conduct research with state of the art geophysical data and leading researchers at IRIS institutions
* develop an understanding of scientific inquiry, including designing and conducting scientific investigations, defending scientific argu¬ments, and preparing publications
* gather, manage, and convey information, using various skills, strategies, resources, and
* learn, use, and evaluate technologies for the collection and study of geophysical data

Your summer research project will culminate with the opportunity to experience the exciting atmosphere of a professional meeting, while presenting your results. In the past, most interns and their hosts have chosen to present at the Fall American Geophysical Union (AGU) meeting held in San Francisco in early December.

As an IRIS Intern you will receive…

* A weekly stipend ($600/week for 9 - 11 weeks + $200 for subsistence)
* Funding for travel to the orientation as well as room and board
* Funding for travel to the home institution of your research host
* Assistance securing housing at the host institution
* Funding for any additional expenses related to fieldwork
* Funding for travel to a professional meeting to present your results along with the associated meeting costs (travel, registration, abstract submission fee and per diem)

The deadline to apply is February 1.

*Unfortunately, due to funding requirements from the National Science Foundation "Undergraduate students supported with NSF funds must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions."

Call for Participation in research cruise offshore Oregon aboard R/V Langseth

Application deadline: April 1, 2022
Cruise dates: July 27 – August 21, 2022
Ports: Newport, Oregon (sail out & in)
P*s: Rob Harris, Glenn Spinelli, Anne Tréhu

We invite applications from undergraduate students, graduate students, post-docs, and early-career scientists to participate in an NSF-funded research cruise aboard the R/V Marcus G. Langseth focused on understanding hydrothermal circulation in oceanic crust approaching the Cascadia subduction zone. This project will involve the collection of seafloor heat flux data and high-resolution 2D multi-channel seismic reflection data along a series of transects that cross basaltic basement highs and propagator wakes. The overarching goal is to determine the effects hydrothermal circulation on the thermal state of the Juan de Fuca plate near the deformation front of the Cascadia subduction zone. More information about the objectives and design of the project can be found at:
https://www.nmt.edu/academics/ees/faculty/gspinelli_documents/chinook/spinelli_chinook.php

The research cruise is scheduled from July 27 - August 21, 2022; it will depart from and return to Newport, Oregon. Participants will be members of the scientific party and be involved in acquisition, onboard processing, and interpretation of marine heat flux data, seismic data, and other underway geophysical data. Applicants do not need to have previous experience with collecting or analyzing these types of data. We intend for this research cruise to provide opportunities for early-career scientists to gain familiarity with these types of data and analyses. Funds are available to cover travel and subsistence costs for US-based scientists.

To apply to participate, please send a CV and 1-page statement of interest and experience to Glenn Spinelli (glenn.spinellinmt.edu). Applications from students (undergraduate or graduate) require a letter of support from an advisor or supervisor.

Application Deadline: April 1, 2022

2022 Research Experiences in Solid Earth Science for Students (RESESS) application is now open.

RESESS is a summer research internship program, primarily funded by the National Science Foundation, that is dedicated to increasing diversity in the geosciences. It is open to undergraduate students who meet the criteria below. Please forward to any students or groups who may be eligible.

RESESS encourages applications from students who are members of historically underrepresented groups in the Earth sciences, with the aim of cultivating diversity in ideas and perspective.

Under the RESESS umbrella are two programs: Boulder, our traditional program and new for the summer of 2022 is RESESS Satellite.
- RESESS Boulder is 11 weeks in person based in Boulder, Colorado. This program runs from Mid May to Early August
RESESS Satellite is a hybrid 11-week program, with 5 weeks in person and 6 weeks remote based at a UNAVCO member institution in the U.S. This program begins Mid June and runs to Late August.
We provide support and mentoring as students participate in authentic research experiences, building skills and confidence. Students may participate for up to two years.
Eligible candidates are full-time undergraduate students who:

-Have U.S. citizenship or permanent-resident status (no exceptions)
-Have completed the equivalent of two years or more of college
-Are currently enrolled in an undergraduate program at the close of this application with a major in Earth or environmental sciences or related field
-Have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
-Have completed several courses in geology, physical geography, hydrology, environmental sciences, math, physics, geophysics, and/or engineering
-Are interested in pursuing a career/graduate school in the Earth sciences or a related science
-Are comfortable with all internship requirements such as living at their research site for the specified duration of their program.

The application deadline is February 8 2022

UNAVCO intends to run all internship programs during summer 2022 in their native format. Should the situation change in terms of health and safety of participants and program staff as it relates to COVID-19, we will convert all programming to a remote model. We will make any such decision on or before March 1, 2022. By applying to this program, you are agreeing to participate in either format. Support is available to assist with a work from home model.

Note: In order to follow federal guidance and maximize the safety of working conditions, UNAVCO requires all interns to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or provide documentation of an exemption for medical or religious reasons. Requests for medical or religious exemptions can be made by contacting Human Resources.
