Research Internships

Listed below are some summer research programs that I have come across. If you know of anymore research programs please contact me, so I can include them.

The Centre for Marine Science and Technology (at Curtin University, Perth, Western Australia) is currently seeking to fill an Associate Professor in Hydrodynamics. 
  The Associate Professor in Hydodynamics position is intended to have a research and development emphasis allied with CMST's existing hydrodynamics activities which include numerical, model and field studies of the dynamics of surface and sub-surface vessels and ocean wave analysis.

Applicants should possess a relevant doctoral degree and have a proven track record in leading and obtaining funding for research and development programs. The appointee will also be considered to succeed the current Centre Director who is soon to retire. Further information is available from their employment website.

Research Assistant at the University of Algarve Signal Processing Laboratory SiPLAB
  A research assistant is wanted to work on a project which concerns the inversion of range-dependent acoustic tomographic data over an ocean front. The work will include participating on the gathering of real data that will take place in the area southwest of continental Portugal (Cape São Vicente). A postdoctorate position is also available.
Summer research internships at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO)'s Marine Physical Laboratory 
  College students in their junior or senior year who are considering a career in scientific research are encouraged to apply for a summer of research experience in marine science and technology at the Marine Physical Laboratory. Candidates should have a strong background in quantitative science with majors in either applied mathematics, chemistry, physics, or engineering.

UCSD Scripps Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program 
  The UCSD Scripps Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program is designed to introduce bright and energetic undergraduates to research in the marine and earth sciences. The intensive SURF research training experience prepares students to become research scholars, and stimulates serious consideration of graduate study. The SURF Program is commited to increasing the number of students who are from underrepresented backgrounds in the graduate programs leading to a doctorate in the sciences.
  To find out how to apply for the SURF Program, please visit the SURF Program website.

NATO SACLANT Undersea Research Centre  
  The NATO SACLANT Undersea Research Centre (SACLANTCEN) is a civilian research agency of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization specializing in underwater acoustics, oceanography, systems concept evaluation and undersea defence studies. It operates under the policy direction of the Supreme Allied Commander Atlantic (SACLANT) and is situated in La Spezia, Italy, midway along the coast between Genoa and Pisa, and some 130 km from Florence.

  Each year SACLANTCEN offers a number (normally nine) of Research Assistantships to students from NATO member countries who are in the final year of their Master's degree (or equivalent), or working towards a higher degree, in subjects such as physics, electronic engineering, oceanography, operations research, signal processing and computer techniques. For more information visit their summer research page or their main webpage.

Summer Student Fellowship Program at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) 
  The objective of this program is to provide a promising group of science and engineering undergraduate students early experience in oceanographic and ocean engineering research that will assist them in their career choices. Students who have completed their junior or senior year of undergraduate study in a science, mathematics, or engineering field may apply for Summer Student Fellowships.
NASA Summer School for High Performance Computational Earth and Space Science. 
  The NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center's (GSFC) Earth and Space Data Computing Division (ESDCD) and the Goddard Earth Sciences and Technology (GEST) Center are soliciting applications from qualified graduate students to participate in an intensive lecture series in computational Earth and space sciences during the 3-week period July 9-27, 2001. (Thought this program has been occuring annually for almost a decade)

Approximately 15 students will be selected to participate in the 3-week program. Students will be given hands-on computer training and small group interaction experience. Experienced computational scientists will present a series of lectures on advanced topics in computational Earth and space sciences, with emphasis on computational fluid dynamics and particle methods. Vendors will present lectures on developing software for their massively parallel architectures. Both the CRAY T3E and the Beowulf systems will be available for use by the students. Check out their webpage.

Student Physical Oceanography Retreat 
  STUPOR is a long weekend for physical oceanography students to get-together and meet people, find common ground, and learn about what other people do (and maybe how it relates to what you do!). A mixture of socializing and the exchange of scientific ideas (presentations and posters to a friendly all-student audience and informal conversations)..
