Are you interested in learning more about protecting our water resources, and getting high quality information to decision-makers? The North East Water Resources Network (NEWRnet) has opportunities for undergraduate students to carry out research for 10 weeks during the summer – in our Vermont, Rhode Island and Delaware research locations.
Research interns will be part of teams who are investigating the impact of climate variability and extreme weather events on water quality and quantity across the north-south gradient from VT to DE. They will investigate how to provide valuable and rapid information to stakeholders (resource users, resource managers, and policy makers) to lead to more time-efficient and better-informed land and water use decision making.

Internship duration, 10 weeks during the summer — June 2 — August 11. The program begins with a two-day short course in June and concludes with a student research symposium on August 11, both of which will be held in Burlington, Vt.
About 14 students will be selected to work with researchers at the University of Delaware, University of Vermont, Salve Regina University, and University of Rhode Island. The 2015 Research Project Descriptions are now on the website, and the online application is open.
Deadline, 4 pm February 20, 2015. Eligible students are rising sophomores, juniors or seniors enrolled at one of the NEWRnet Partner institutions.
