Cornell Geopaths Geoscience Learning Ecosystem
Program Dates: 4 June – 4 August 2023
Application Deadline: 15 February
We are reaching out on behalf of the Earth and Atmospheric Sciences Department at Cornell University about a new internship program in the department. This is a paid 9-week summer internship at Cornell called CorGGLE (Cornell Geopaths Geoscience Learning Ecosystem). This program is funded by the National Science Foundation GeoPaths program. Please forward this email to individuals or groups of students that would be interested in this opportunity.
CorGGLE allows students and recent graduates from non-geoscience fields to explore opportunities for geoscience graduate study, specifically giving them exposure to myriad socially relevant careers in the geosciences.
Students will work on a research project with distinguished faculty and staff, present their work, learn about geoscience careers from practitioners, receive training in professional skills, and network with others in their field of interest through weekly luncheons.
Research and career topics include:
- Energy & Water Resources
- Environmental Science
- Climate Change
- Natural Hazards
- Remote Sensing & Geographical Information Systems
Students from under-represented groups are especially encouraged to apply and those with non-geoscience majors including: environmental science, physics, chemistry, geography, engineering, math, applied math, biology and computer science as well as social and behavioral sciences.
Apply Online by 15 February: https://sites.coecis.cornell.edu/eascorggle/
