Arecibo Observatory will conduct a summer student program at the observatory site in Puerto Rico during Summer 2016 (contingent on funding from the National Science Foundation’s Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program). Areas of research include radio astronomy, solar system studies and atmospheric sciences. Students interested in electronic instrumentation or computer science are also encouraged to apply. The assistantships, which include a stipend, accommodation, and round trip airline tickets, are conducted during a flexible ten week period beginning in June. Students will have opportunities to visit many of the beautiful sites of Puerto Rico, which is a U.S. Commonwealth.
Undergraduates who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents, and who will be enrolled in a bachelor’s degree program (part or full time) during Fall 2016 are eligible. Apply online at http://www.naic.edu/reu_program.html by January 25, 2016. EOE/AAE
