Four paid undergraduate research positions in Ecuador, summer 2023
The Carbonshed Lab at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill invites applications for International Research Experiences for Undergraduates (IREU) during the summer 2023 and through the academic year 2023-2024.
A new partnership between UNC-Chapel Hill, the Universidad San Francisco Quito (USFQ), and the 100,000 Strong in the Americas Initiative Fund will fund up to four paid positions for outstanding undergraduate students interested in gaining field and lab experience in hydrological and ecological processes. Four additional students will be recruited from USFQ. Selected students will participate in a research experience focused on data collection in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador. International travel for this experience is contingent upon travel regulations at UNC.
Undergraduate students will work in close collaboration with USFQ undergraduate students, and UNC and USFQ scientists. Students will be supported through a research-intensive, year-long program focusing on increasing their chance to succeed in STEM fields. Participants will be required to attend professional development and research workshops. The year will culminate with a formal research presentation by each student at UNC’s Annual Celebration of Undergraduate Research in April, 2024.
