Great Undergrad Research Opportunity in Geology
The Keck Geology Consortium has an array of exciting undergraduate research opportunities in geological/environmental science sub-disciplines (climate, petrology, geomorphology, volcanology, geochemistry, structure, and more), and in a wide range of locations (Peru, Canada, Alaska, Colorado, Wyoming, Connecticut, Iceland, Virgin Islands and even Mars!).
There are 15 slots available for students from non-Keck Member schools. Students need to be current juniors (seniors in 2011-2012) and US citizens or permanent residents. The program includes 4 weeks of summer research (field and/or lab work depending on the project), continuing research during the academic year (jointly advised by a project faculty member and a research advisor at the students home institution), attendance at the annual Keck Geology Consortium Symposium, and a publication in the annual Keck Geology Consortium proceedings volume.
The application deadline is Friday February 4th, 2011. Visit the Keck website for application details.
