The CIRES Summer 2022 Research Program is a paid summer research internship program open to undergraduate or graduate students interested in the research areas of the NOAA Global Systems Laboratory. The one of ten NOAA Research laboratories and is located in Boulder, Colorado. GSL research improves environmental prediction models, develops state-of-the-science decision support tools and visualization systems, and uses high-performance computing technology to support a Weather-Ready Nation.
The goal of the CIRES Summer Research Program is to give interested students a research experience at CU Boulder and the NOAA Global Systems Laboratory. Students with a variety of scientific and technical backgrounds can explore environmental or geosciences and learn more about how their skills can be applied to societal needs.
Up to 11 students will be accepted into the Summer 2022 program. Students will be paid to conduct environmental and geoscience research activities with CIRES and GSL scientists. Undergraduate interns will receive $750/week over 10 weeks (May 23-July 29th) and graduate student interns will receive $1500/week over 12 weeks (May 23-August 19) paid biweekly.
The Summer 2022 program will be entirely remote due to uncertainties about in-person presence in the NOAA Global Systems Laboratory.
Applicants will also be asked to submit unofficial transcripts and to ask a person familiar with their academic or research background to complete a short recommendation form. See links to the recommendation forms on the “For Recommender” tab or in the FAQ.
- Students from rural colleges and from groups historically underrepresented in science are encouraged to apply.
- Note that no prior research experience is required and there is no minimum GPA requirement; All applicants will be given full consideration.
- We are planning for a fully remote program summer of 2022.
