Description: Arctic Research Experiences for Undergraduate Students!

The Svalbard Research Experience for Undergraduates Project is once again offering exciting opportunities for students to participate in polar science research projects on the arctic island of Svalbard. We are calibrating the record of Holocene climate change contained in glacial-fed
Lake Linne by studying the modern glacial, fluvial, and lacustrine systems.

We seek motivated students who will be in their final undergraduate year during 2012-2013 to develop their own research project addressing current and past climate change in the Arctic. Students will formulate their own research questions and carry-out the associated field work during a five week field program on Svalbard. Students will complete their projects at their home institution during their senior academic year. The program will run from approximately 15 July to 22 August 2012.

Students from under-represented minority groups are particularly encouraged to apply. Students selected for the Svalbard REU Project will have all of their expenses paid (air fare, room/board, and research costs) and will receive a summer stipend. The Svalbard REU is supported by Artic Natural Sciences and the Paleoclimate program, Atmospheric Sciences Division of NSF. The National Science Foundation requires participating students to be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
