On-Campus Research Internships
Undergraduate students have conducted research to improve the representation of clouds in climate models, develop prediction models for wind gusts and lightning, and improve understanding of tropical cyclone evolution at higher latitudes, to name a few examples. Students typically begin with informal or for-credit internships, advancing to paid internships as the research continues. Interested students are encouraged to directly contact the faculty member or members with whom they are interested in conducting research. Depending on the project, you could become involved as early as your freshman year!
Students can participate in Research Experiences for Undergraduates programs at federal labs and other universities, intern with broadcast meteorologists in the Milwaukee market, or volunteer with the local National Weather Service forecast office. Please contact the Program Chair to learn more about these opportunities. Current students are also encouraged to review the weekly Freshwater Opportunities newsletter for information on other local- and state-level internships.
