The Center for Research on Invasive Species and Small Populations (CRISSP) undergraduate summer interns will find themselves in an energizing intellectual environment generated by faculty members from several disciplines, graduate students, and student teams all tackling field and laboratory projects designed to address important resource conservation and management issues. It is a dynamic atmosphere where an undergraduate student will learn, grow, and ultimately, share hypotheses and research findings with a team of co-researchers in the field of his or her choice. Research topics illustrate the breadth and interdisciplinary natures of research addressed by CRISSP faculty.
Upon further review we have decided to postpone the 2015 CRISSP REU Internship Program until the summer of 2016 pending notification from NSF this March on our renewal grant. We apologize to any potential applicants this year but feel it is best for the program to delay until 2016. Thank you.
If you are still interested in applying for another grant opportunity we will be posting the application soon for the 2015 Regional Approaches to Climate Change (REACCH) Summer Internship Program at the University of Idaho, Washington State University and Oregon State University. For more information on the REACCH PNA project you can view the website here. To apply, please visit the REACCH Summer Internship Program website.
CRISSP, the University of Idaho, and the National Science Foundation are sponsoring 10 undergraduate interns to work with Center Faculty for a 9-week period from June – August. Summer interns will conduct interdisciplinary research with faculty and graduate students, as well as participate in activities designed to help prepare them for graduate school and a career in science. Interns will receive a salary stipend of $500 per week for the summer internship. Summer interns also will be provided with University housing, a $400 food allowance, identification cards, access to library and student recreation facilities, and email and internet privileges. Travel funds are also available. A weekend team-building raft trip on the wild and scenic Salmon River for summer interns and faculty members will also be offered as a part of a science ethics component.
