The Center for Aerosol Impacts on Chemistry of the Environment (CAICE) focuses on improving our understanding of how aerosol particles influences the environment, air quality, and climate. The organization’s diverse team investigates the enormous chemical, biological, and physical variability of airborne particles, with special attention to sea spray. Using state-of-the-art instrumentation and computational tools, including a novel real-world in the laboratory approach to generate aerosols, CAICE is dedicated to researching all aspects of aerosol chemistry, one of the largest current gaps in our understanding of climate change.
Through the Summer Undergraduate Research Program, thoughtful and enthusiastic undergraduate researchers engage in experimental or theoretical CAICE research throughout the US. Top CAICE faculty and researchers are eager to involve you in their mission!
Undergraduate researchers in the program are able to choose from CAICE labs located across the US.
- conduct exciting hands-on scientific research
- receive graduate school preparation
- attend field trips and symposia
- have opportunities to present their research
Participants in the 8 to 10 week summer program will receive stipends of atleast $5,000 and on-campus housing for the full duration of the program. Travel reimbursements are available.
The application deadline is February 1st, 2019.
