NASA Internships

Today at the 20th Semi-Annual Research Mixer, a representative from NASA came to talk about internship opportunities! He recommended checking out Intern.NASA.gov and look at the Opportunities/Projects. The closest location is at Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) so filter for that Center, and for the Summer 2020 session. There are many opportunities available, so do some research and prepare your application (remember, get your letters of recommendation and transcripts for the application). Applications are due March 8th, so add this to the top of your to-do list! New internships are being added all the time, so keep reading!

Looking for a Fall 2020 internship? Bookmark Intern.NASA.gov and check back again later!

NSF REU Aquatic Ecology Program in action

We are excited to invite applications from undergraduate students to participate in a National Science Foundation supported summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program focused on the ecology of southeastern ponds, rivers, reservoirs, and estuaries.  Ten undergraduate students will work closely with a team of Auburn University faculty to explore aquatic ecosystems, complete a student-driven research project, participate in a variety of professional development and social activities, develop and lead an outreach project, and share their research findings in a symposium at the conclusion of the program.  Participants will work closely with our mentors to develop an interdisciplinary project involving complementary fields, such as community ecology, limnology, evolution, fisheries management, molecular biology, conservation, biogeochemistry, biodiversity, and microbiology.  The program will run from May 17 to July 26, 2020 (10 weeks).

All applicants who are interested in receiving NSF support must currently be a (1) U.S. citizen, U.S. national, or permanent resident and (2) an undergraduate freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior graduating no earlier than September 2020 or a high school senior that will start their undergraduate education the following fall semester after the REU program.  We are especially encouraging students from traditionally under-represented groups in biology (i.e., African-Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, other Pacific Islanders, students with disabilities, first generation college students, and U.S. veterans) as well as students from institutions with limited research opportunities (e.g., community colleges) and/or students in financial need to apply.

Although not financially supported by our REU Site, we are also open to including a few strongly motivated and self-funded international students in our REU Site research and professional development activities.

Con Edison Social & Behavioral Research Award

This is an opportunity for FACULTY. If awarded a grant, faculty will be able to hire STUDENTS to work on the project.

Submission Deadline: Wednesday, May 1, 2019

In 2014, eight residents of East Harlem lost their lives when two buildings were destroyed by a natural gas explosion and the resulting fire.  People in the area recounted smelling gas in the days leading up to the incident, but no one had reported the gas odor until shortly before the explosion. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigated the incident and determined that natural gas from a compromised gas line connection in the street had leaked and migrated into one of the buildings where it ignited.

In support of Con Edison’s goal of increasing public awareness of gas safety and of the importance of reporting natural gas odors, the CUNY Office of K-16 Initiatives is requesting proposals for behavioral research projects that aim to better understand the factors that may or may not prompt community members to contact 911 or Con Edison when they detect a gas leak or gas odor.

Projects relevant to human behavioral responses to detecting and reporting natural gas odors will be considered.  This research will be used to inform and enhance Con Edison’s public outreach, superintendent training curriculum, and other gas safety programs.

The grant funding is for one year (August 1, 2019 – July 31, 2020). We anticipate awarding 5-8 projects with funding levels of $25,000-$35,000 in 2019.
