Undergraduate Research Opportunity – REU at CSPAR

The Center for Space Plasma and Aeronomic Research (CSPAR) at the University of Alabama in Huntsville has announced a new REU program open to undergraduate students. The ten week program will take place from May 22 through July 28, 2023, in Huntsville, Alabama at the University of Alabama campus and at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, where ten undergraduate students will be invited to engage in cutting edge heliophysics research with astrophysicists from UAH or NASA. A paid internship, students will be provided with a $6000 stipend for the summer, which includes food and living expenses during the program. In addition, a travel allowance and housing on UAH campus will be provided, and participants will receive partial funding to attend either the Fall 2023 meeting of the American Geophysical Union or the American Astronomical Society Meeting.

The application period is open through March 13th, 2023. This opportunity is open to undergraduate students, and students from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply. Research topics range from solar atmosphere to local interstellar medium, and include theory, modeling, simulations, data analysis, and instrument design/testing.
