Description:
Applications for Summer Undergraduate Internships with the Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) are now being accepted.

SCEC offers two internship programs, each providing compensation of at least $6500:

The Undergraduate Studies in Earthquake Information Technology (UseIT) Program challenges teams of undergraduates of diverse backgrounds with real-world earthquake issues that require collaborative, interdisciplinary applications of earth science and information technology (including high performance computing).

The SCEC Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) Program pairs undergraduates with SCEC scientists at that researcher's institution or field site. Projects for SURE interns span the spectrum of earthquake science.

You can contact internships@scec.org with any questions.
