NASA Research Opportunity in a DC-8 Flying Lab
March 11, 2010 — NASA is looking for some motivated advanced undergraduate and early graduate students to participate in a six-week, paid research program this summer using a DC-8 flying laboratory based in Southern California. The Student Airborne Research Program, or SARP, is managed by the National Suborbital Education and Research Center (NSERC). Students selected will acquire hands-on Earth sciences research experience in all aspects of a scientific campaign.
Applicants should have a strong academic background in disciplines relevant to the Earth system, including the physical, chemical or biological sciences, or engineering. Full-time student status at an accredited U.S. college or university is required, and women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.
Successful applicants will be awarded a $2,500 stipend. NSERC will provide travel to and from California and living expenses while in California. Applications are due March 16, 2010, so you need to act quickly. For full details, including how to apply, click here. Questions should be directed to Rick Shetter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
