The Coastal Critical Zone Network is an interdisciplinary team project researching the effects of changing climate and sea level rise on the Delmarva Peninsula, which includes Delaware and parts of Maryland and Virginia. The project is funded by the National Science Foundation, a prestigious, taxpayer-supported federal science agency. The Critical Zone team is inviting applications for paid undergraduate research internships; interns will be part of sub-teams in hydrology, biogeochemistry or ecosystem research. Research will involve a combination of laboratory, outdoor field work and/or computational environments. We seek a diverse group of undergraduate students to join our team in a welcoming, collaborative environment.

There are six internship positions available this summer, working on four different projects. Detailed descriptions of each project can be found on our website. To complete this application, you will need to upload a resume, academic transcripts, one letter of recommendation, and two short essays.

Each 10-week internship provides a $6,000 stipend, with additional funds available for housing.
