Chemistry, Computer Science: Modeling, Earth and Environmental Sciences: Atmospheric Sciences
***PLEASE APPLY ON OUR WEBSITE***
The REU program goal is to provide undergraduate students in engineering and related fields an opportunity to participate in ongoing active research programs. Working closely with faculty and graduate students, the participants will gain hands on experience with atmospheric chemistry measurements and modeling.
What you do
Students will work on research projects ranging from air quality measurements in the laboratory or during field campaigns to running large scale air quality models. Each student will have a primary instrument, dataset or model they use during the summer. Students may work in collaborative teams with faculty and graduate students or more independently to accomplish specific research goals.
All participants will take a series of half-day workshops designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of atmospheric chemistry, measurements, and modeling. Workshops include:
Data Analysis and Visualization
Near the end of the 9.5 week session, students will prepare a poster and present their results during a poster symposium for all of the WSU REU programs.
Gain valuable research experience using cutting edge instrumentation or models and working in a team environment.
Have fun, make new friends, see the Palouse!
Who is eligible?
Participants must be currently registered at a two or four year college, and may not have received their Bachelor's degree prior to July 2020. Women, members of demographic groups traditionally underrepresented in engineering, and students from community colleges or institutions that do not offer research opportunities for undergraduates are particularly encouraged to apply.
Students at all levels of their undergraduate work are sought for this program, and majors such as civil engineering, environmental engineering, as well as students from chemistry, physics, math, and other technical majors are encouraged to apply. Yes, we take Freshmen to Seniors, we do hope to have a broad mix of students at various levels of their college careers, so don't hold back from applying just because you haven't had any environmental engineering courses.
In addition to gaining experience with instruments and/or models currently used in government labs, regulatory agencies, consulting firms, and graduate schools, you receive:
A stipend of $5,000 for the 9.5 week session and free housing
Travel assistance for travel to and from Pullman, WA
We will provide housing in an off campus facility, with a shared kitchen and recreation facilities for all students.
Additional Salary Information: Travel to and fir the program will be reimbursed. Conference funding will also be provided as a part of the program.
About Washington State University Laboratory of Atmospheric Research REU
The Laboratory of Atmospheric Research at Washington State University runs a summer internship program for undergraduate students that is focused on atmospheric modeling and involves fields such as atmospheric chemistry, climate change studies, data science and atmospheric research. Our program is based out of Pullman, Washington and focuses on projects in the inland northwest.
