Undergraduate research opportunity in ocean acidification

The Ocean Acidification Research Center in the College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences is seeking two upper-level undergraduate students to participate on a research cruise aboard the USCGC Healy to study ocean acidification in summer 2020. Interested students are encouraged to apply for travel funding and stipend through URSA, the Undergraduate Research and Scholarly Activity office.

Summer award applications are due to URSA on Sunday, Feb. 23.

Participants will work in the OARC July 6-17 for up to 10 hours a week before the cruise. During this time students will learn about oceanography, ocean acidification, sample collection and analyses, and safe practices for fieldwork in the Arctic and at sea.

Cruise dates will be July 22-Aug 18. Travel dates may shift a day or two depending on the weather and the ship’s schedule. Students will meet in the OARC the week of Aug. 24-28 to discuss the cruise.

You can download a flyer (PDF) here. For details about the project, please contact OARC at oarc@cfos.uaf.edu. For details about funding awards, please contact URSA at ursa.uaf@alaska.edu.
