Are you looking for a summer undergraduate research opportunity in the Earth and environmental sciences? Stanford University’s School of Earth, Energy and Environmental Sciences is looking for undergraduate sciences students to apply to SURGE (Summer Undergraduate Research in Geosciences and Engineering). SURGE gives students outside of Stanford the opportunity to work on earth and environmental sciences research projects with a Stanford faculty for eight weeks during the summer—from June 20, 2022 to August 12, 2022. We encourage students who are seeking their first formal research experience to apply.
The areas of study offered through Stanford SURGE touch on a variety of disciplines, including geochemistry, geophysics, Earth systems, and energy resource engineering. We also encourage majors in chemistry, math, computer sciences, engineering, and biology who are interested in the Earth and environmental sciences.
Students receive room & board on Stanford’s campus, a $4,800 stipend, and a seven-week statistical thinking course, which amounts to approximately a $12,000 package. In addition to working closely with Stanford faculty and PhD students in a Stanford lab, students also present their research in front of the Stanford community at the SURGE research symposium, taking place in the last week of the program. This information and more can be found on our website: https://earth.stanford.edu/dei/surge. Applications will go live on November 29, 2021 on our website and are due February 4, 2022. Feel free to email us if you have any questions. Hope to see your application!
