Basic and Environmental Soil Science
For summer 2017.... Seeking rising college sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
Take part in a transformative research experience in the science of soils.
Learn from a broad and diverse group of mentors
, developing skills in chemistry, physics, microbiology, ecology, geology, and hydrology. Join us for a 10-week individualized summer research experience including a week-long traveling field camp
, workshops with leading scientists at the NSF Calhoun Critical Zone Observatory
and U.S. EPA National Risk Management Research Lab
, and opportunities for post-summer travel to National Professional Scientific Meetings. Participants receive a stipend, apartment-style housing, meal allowance, and travel re-imbursement. No previous experience with soils is necessary.
